QUESTIONS

  • Can my husband take my daughter for xmas eve, xmas, news year eve, and new years day to another state before divorce and child custody is seattled? She will be one year old.
  • Have a single wide at a park, power has been continuously cutting for the past two weeks due to a faulty breaker in park hook up (not in home), have notified park management 9 days ago and they have still not fixed it. Extreme temperatures outside are causing high temperatures inside, endangering my pets. What can I do to speed things along?
  • A month and a half ago there was a water leak in my apartment causing floor damage to most of the apartment. While our landlord did repair the leak, the floor was never repaired and I am afraid of health problems from mold growing under the floorboards. After asking multiple times the only thing the landlord has said is she will take care of it sometime in the future because she is busy with her personal life. What can I do in this situation and is this breaching the lease for failure to repair?
  • My uncle passed away and owned an RV and other property that he paid lot fees inside an RV park. He has lived there for many years. The RV Manager and Owner are refusing to allow payments to keep the lot reserved while we get court papers to become executor of his estate. They intend to "evict" for non-payment if we have not removed the property by the end of the month. They will not let us access to his property without court papers. Can they refuse to accept payment from us and what are they legally required to do with his property?
  • My company instituted a tobacco free workplace and we need to go off company property to smoke or vape. Now they are sending security telling us we cannot smoke in front of other businesses on public property and on public reserve land by putting up extreme fire danger signs year round. Can they enforce where we smoke or vape when off of company grounds?
  • Today I got my food stamp EBT card in the mail and called to activate it. Well, I gave them my social security number and made up my pin number like they asked me to and then it comes to the part where they tell me what my balance is. Well it said I have no current balance at this moment. I was just wondering why I don't have a balance when everyone I know that has or has had food stamps before is telling me that there should be money on there when I activate it?
  • What parental rights do I have as a non-custodial parent. The custodial parent refuses to inform of medical conditions, medical and dental visits, school functions (states I am forbidden to attend), parent-teacher conferences, open house at school, basically he believes I am not permitted to have any form of contact outside my ordered visitation time - Saturdays 7am - 6pm?
  • My wife passed away close to 4 years ago after 35 years of marriage. Any $ she had or we both had (including IRA's) transferred to my name. If I get married again, are the dollars (mainly in my IRA) mine alone or would they become "ours"?
  • Advance Directive forms
  • convictions were in the 1970's how do I go about getting my civil rights back?
