QUESTIONS

  • I moved in to my apartment on 6/8/18. On 8/20 I found bed bugs in my bedroom. I documented everything and my property manager said she would be sending the exterminator on 8/24 to start the treatment. My question is Who pays for the treatment? When I asked the property manager this she said the cost is split 50/50. On the lease it is NOT stated who is responsible. But, all of our furniture was purchased brand new after we moved in, so I do not believe I as the tenant should pay but I need clarity.
  • If I think that you have a "disability," what "reasonable accommodation" does your company have to make?
  • In Arizona, can I move out at the age of sixteen with parental consent? I plan to move to Wyoming, I will have a place to live immediately upon arrival. I will have a part time job and plan on graduating high school.
  • What haplens if you get pregnant with a person tgat you have a restraining order on while tge restraining order is still up
  • My boyfriend and I have been together 6 years aand have a 3 year old child. My boyfriend and his ex have bee in a custody batter over his 11 year old son for 5 years. His ex just move dout of state and my boufriend now is the primary parent. We would like to move in to the same house and remain unmarried. Will this impact his costody arrangement with his 11 year old? Specifically, is this legal in AZ yo live together?
  • If you owe a fine as a juvenile and it isn't paid when you turn 18 who pays the fine parent or the child
  • Is there a 3 day release from jail if not charged rule? But if the jail lists charges on the inmate, doesn't that mean that they have been charged? And if the preliminary hearing is scheduled, doesn't that mean that they have been charged, but not necessarily indicted? On major methamphetamine trafficking charges, isn't it unlikely someone would get out on the above-mentioned 3 day "rule"? Without a bond? Just turned loose?
  • I took out a Renters Insurance Policy for thief or property damage. My apartment was burglarized. My wheelchair was stolen and the insurance refuses to pay because it was issued by the VA Medical center. Are they exempt from paying for items issued to me?
  • How old do you have to be to work ?
  • WE have paid a photographer $600 for items he has never provided and he now refuses to speak to us. We are based in the UK but I have family in Arizona who will attend on my behalf and we feel that a simple claim might just be ignored. Question is : How can we best ensure that we will have maximum clout when approaching the reclaimation of our monies? If your answer is to employ a lawyer, may we have a list local to Tucson, thank you
