QUESTIONS

  • A judge awarded the other parent joint legal decision making and parenting time. Within the last 4 mths he has seen her a total of 3 weeks. I filed to set aside the judge's ruling and got denied. I tried to modify child support and got denied. I don't know what else to do. I have documents printed out to providing evidence of my claims. What else can I do? The judge made her decision April 2nd of this year
  • I just filed an Enforcement of visitation and now the other party is willing to grant me visitation. Since we are in total agreement how do I let the Judge know? It says on the document that if we come to a agreement we have to let the courts and judge know.
  • when you graduate medical school, do you have to legally change your name to DR.?
  • My girlfriend of 23 years who has two boys from a previous age 33 & 26 and & our kids for years I worked and gave her my checks and she payed the bills,over the years we accomplished a lot, two homes& a 1bedroom apartment, recently I came home from work one day and she had moved out, leaving me with all bills and house payments.also she hadn't payed anything for 5 months,she had also signed the title to my car putting it in her name, can I press charges ?
  • My ex has decided that he would like to relinquish his parental rights. When we go to court and the judge allows this (he's been out of the picture for 10 yrs) will the child's last name change right then, will it go to my maiden name? I'm not sure who to ask any of these questions to?
  • I have a custody trial coming next year & I’m representing myself. I'm attempting to prove child abuse by my ex to his oldest son (not common to us) that I witnessed. I have filed a CPS report in the past but it was unsubstantiated. His son just turned 18 & is still living in the home.There are no police reports. Instead I’m hoping to use his son’s behavioral records from school, to convey that he has documented behavioral/emotional issues that his father would respond poorly at home by phys abuse. His son has a right to keep his educational records private. But can I request for this case??
  • My husband & I both agree on the dissolution of our covenant marriage. We have filed with Maricopa County Courts. I need to know if I have the proper forms to include with the standard forms given to me thru the court house.
  • My tenants have two months left on their lease. They have moved out and my home is empty. They have made and given keys to cleaners and repair people without my knowledge or permission. Is this legal? Can I have the locks changed even though they are still paying rent?
  • I am renting to own my manufactured home from my landlord who is in turn paying off loan company. The contract she wrote and we both signed but was never notarized or witnessed states that I will rent the home" as is" meaning she is not responsible for any damages. The septic tank is broken and flooding badly enough that one side of the house has sunken into the ground. The clogging from the septic has caused leaks and clogs in water pipes causing mold in walls and insulation under house ruined. A lic. Plumber informed me that the septic tank got broken when she installed it previous to my renting. It is also illegally placed too close to house. Also, my mother paid my rent in February and when I asked my landlord if she received this money she stated no. I called my mother to confirm she did go there then I called landlord back and told her I knew she was lying about it and she admitted that she had in fact lied about how much rent I actually owe her. What can I do about all of this?
  • I had a friend who needed a place to stay. I told him he could stay at my apartment for 2-3 weeks. I also stated to him not to have mail sent to my residence I advised him a p.o. Box was cheap to go that route. Well it's been about 8 months now. I've been telling him he needs to get his own place and move out for many months now. Finally I just told him he had a couple days and that's all. So he has a place and told the police and my landlord his place would be ready on the 5th of November 2017. He has also changed his mailing address. Can I change my locks now since it's nov.8th 2017?
