QUESTIONS

  • i was not arrested but have to go to court for a first time shop lifting in Pinal county. I have no job or money what is going to happen?
  • My children's father is a registered sex offender, and was awarded supervised visitation in May 2009. He paid for two visits in July 2009. As of September 25, he has three warrants out for his arrest and is considered an absconder. He is running from authorities. I would like to make the family court aware of the situation and change the supervised visitation that was awarded in May 2009. What steps should I take? How do I Petition the court for a status conference?
  • I am on SSI and so is the father of my 6 month old son...However the father is in jail with his probation being revoked and also has never met his son. Would my son be eligible for any of his or my own SSI benefits for any kind of child support payment if I were to establish an order of paternity?
  • Does FMLA cover my grand-child who was placed with me by Tribal CPS? CPS is her temporary guardian but I was given authority to sign for services for her
  • My landlord issued a letter in May, stating that that was my 48 hour notice that she would begin showing my apartment to potential tenants. However, she is stating that she can show it from 12:30-7:30pm every day of the week with that notice. Is that legal?
  • I have an almost 6-year-old son; never married; son's father is on his birth certificate and I receive child support, but no written custody order or anything else.

I would like to move out of state and potentially out of the country for my career.
