QUESTIONS

  • I am needing info about relocating my neice and her two children from Phoenix to Oklahoma. She is divorced,receiving 400.00 child support. She is unemployed and no ther income.This results from having a child that is bipolar, ADHD, and mood disorders. She desperately needs help from her family in Oklahoma. Her children's father will not let her move. We can help her with her children but e cannot afford an attorney and doesn't know a lot of people in Phoenix. Any advice or contacts that I could speak with. Thank you so much
  • How can i get another Ahcccs card for my one year old daughter
  • Is the self-help booklet available in Spanish?
  • My sis has been in my house since 2015 and I moved to CA. I just found out that my landlord served a judgement in my name and evicted her in my name without notifying me. The Property Mgr and the Owner knew I was in CA and said they would put the lease in her name but never did. Since they did not notify me, is this legal?
  • I have lived in the same apartment for the last 3 years. It is a 30+ year old complex and has had few if any true upgrades. It was recently sold to another company and AMC took over the management of the property. In addition to a Common Area Maintenance fee attached to the utility bill, they refuse to come down in price of the monthly rent. Is this a case of price gouging and also is the CAM fee legal?
  • I was unjustly terminated for calling the employee hotline and filing a complaint. Now they are trying to lie and say I quit. Unemployment found in my favor. Do I have a case and is there a lawyer in Tucson who will take my case and work with no money unless I win?
  • 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?
  • I have a 10 yr old son. His father's name isn't on birth certificate. He has not helped at all. I started to take him for child support but that fell through. I really don't want him involved in his life. He shows no concerns of my son's welfare. My question is can I change my son's last name (his father's)to mine without going through the courts in establishing him being his father? We were never married. His last contact with him was over 4 yrs ago. There is nothing that's been done through the courts. I also want my fiance to be able to adopt him (they want that too)
  • I was notified today that my property management company is no longer under contract with the owners due to a death of the main owner. What are my rights as far as if I just move out or how long do I have until locks are changed?
  • I work for a large company and am going to have a baby October 18. My 1 year mark in the company will be November 17. Is there anyway I can take a "personal leave" or short term disability for a few weeks, and then in November file for FMLA ? Please advise. Thank you. (The personal leave would be for birth, the FMLA would be to bond and take care of a newborn)
