QUESTIONS

  • Say you live with someone, or vice-versa.. (who's name is NOT on the Lease) & they petition for an Order of Protection against you & they also filled out the paperwork using your address. How does this work exactly, when it's YOUR address?
  • How long a landlord take to fix your a/c?
  • My lease expires on 5/31/16. I. I intended on renewing, however I received a Notice of Non Renewal requesting I vacate by 6/4/16. When I asked the landlord "why?", she stated that a reason is not necessary pursuant to law. Is this true? Can you provide me with the statute, please? I was not able to find it.
  • My kids are not liking the current visitation - 5/2/2/5. If I change to only seeing the kids on the weekends, the extra child support may be too much. My Ex said she is ok with asking me to pay $461/mo (up from 211/mo), which I can handle, but it looks like the law says that just because my Ex and I agreed on this does not mean the Judge can or will approve - it looks like he needs a compelling reason why the "guidelines" should not be followed. Will the judge ok our agreement, or insist the guideline be followed?
  • If the child is in joint custody, do they have a choice on whether they want to spend time with the other parent or not?
  • We currently have a mortgage on our home as well as a home equity line of credit. If the first mortgage company forecloses on our property, can the bank that we have a home equity line of credit sue us or file a judgement on us for the amount of the home equity line of credit we used?
  • Can a landlord refuse to accept a 60 day written notice? Where are the laws against this?
  • Im 16 and pregnant.I want to be emancipated,but I feel I may need public assistance such as food stamps and cash assistance because I'm currently unemployed.I also need help finding a place because I'm getting kicked out.Can a pregnant teen become emancipated and get on food stamps and cash assistance/?And is there anyone who can legally help an emancipated pregnant teen find a place of their own?
