QUESTIONS

  • My husband died in Nov. and I am living only on Social Security. His hospital bills are now coming in. Am I, by law, obligated to pay them???
  • We are owners of a double wide in a moblie home park in Tucson.  We live out of state and for the last 5 months have received only partial payments and at this time a tenant is 4 months past due in agreed payments. We have had several issues with this problem, and feel we can no longer allow this person to occupy our property and would like to have someone tell us how we can go about serving notice for an eviction. We have read the laws of Arizona and know that a paper has to be obtained, filed, and paid for by us and then sent on to the occupant of property.  How can we start this procedure?
  • My question is I suffer from depression. Just got married can my mom or family member commit me voluntary and sign papers or does my new husband can only do that. I have gone to rehab when I was younger before for a week I was committed allowed by my insurance. Do I need to have him do a notary paper. My mom always threatens to have me put away and laughs. Like a game or something. Thank you Sandra
  • I paid my deposit to my landlord with 2 money orders. I have receipts from the landlord for both of them. The landlord "lost" one of the money orders. They are now asking me to pay them again for the lost one and for me to file the paperwork myself to see if I can get the money back from the company who issued the original money order. I feel that once it left my possession and they gave me a receipt that it is their responsibility. Can they penalize me for their mistake?
  • I have been renting a place and the landlord let it foreclose so I need to find out my rights as a tenant asap. I am worried and have dogs and no place to go and little money to make a move! Can anyone help me?
  • What are rules for Medicaid recipients with regard to the other spouses rights? I'm planning for if I would have to go to a Nursing Home.
  • Could people be reported for "food Stamp" fraud? How does one go about report someone for fraud?
  • If a seller provides a counteroffer on a property, does the seller have to approve the offer in writing or in a new contract?
  • how much can a landlord charge you for later fees per month?
  • I need all the help I can get for my 2 year old daughter and myself being 4 months pregnant. Our home with all of our personal belongings burned to the ground on friday the 13th 2011 at night. It left us homeless and absolutely nothing left of ours.
