QUESTIONS

  • my daughter father owes child suppoort but he wants his daughter to live with him will i be responable to pay him child support.
  • How can I make sure custody goes to my mom w/o any body standing in the way, incase of my death.
  • My brother owns a construction company and hired a homeless man. He told the homeless man he could temporarily stay in a trailer that had no electricity or water, but a roof over his head. This trailer is on my property and the homeless man has since been fired by my brother and I gave him an eviction notice and he has not made any attempt to move out. He built a shed on my property without permission using stolen material from my brothers construction company. How do I get him off my property? There was no written lease only a verbal agreement. I don't know what to do?
  • i have a court date in Arizona and I live in Georgia and i want to show up for this date but i don't have the money to travel or the fines, it is for disorderly conduct, can get this settled in Georgia or what will happen?
  • I'm now in a nursing home and getting AHCCCS. I know my land has a lien because of this. I can't afford to pay for my property taxes. I also have some unpaid medical bills. My daughter only has power of attorney for legal matters. Can she file for bankruptcy for me? What are my options when I can't pay?
  • I was convicted of a felony in 1994. This conviction was set aside in 1996. Can an apartment still refuse me because they say I have a felony conviction? I try to explain that the conviction was set aside, but they still will not rent to me. Is that legal, and do I have any recourse?
  • Is the landlord of the mobile home park legally supposed to tell all the tenants if there is construction going on that will mess with the water supply? Our landlord rarely if ever tells us when there is construction expected and our water will be shut off without prior notice. Isnt there a law against that or something?
  • Can I get an annulment if my husband sexually abused his step-daughter (my daughter)? He has not been charged but there is an open case with the city of Phoenix detectives. CPS is also involved. There is an order of protection which he has been served. He has left the state to avoid being questioned and going to jail due to not following the order of protection.
  • My son is 5 years old. I have sole custody. I read the self service paperwork and it says I have to notify the other parent or show "order terminating parental rights of the other parent." Is my divorce decree showing sole custody good enough? I know sole custody gives me the right to make decisions for my children even if my ex does not agree.
  • My landlord has sold the house I am renting. I have 10 months left on the lease. The new home-owner is not buying the house as "occupied". I have agreed to move out. Do the old homeowners owe me any sort of compensation because they broke the lease (comparable to what I would owe if I were the one breaking the lease)? I had about 1 weeks notice. Thanks!
