  • My daughter left the house and been gone for almost a month now. I know where she is and call her everyday, but she wont answer only txt me saying she don't have to listen or answer to me. She says she is home. I already look like a bad parent letting her be gone that long and feel like i failed as a parent. The friend she stays at i barely know and her mom allows my daughter to be there without even wondering or try to communicate with me. She brought her home a few times that i know of to pick up clothes. What can i do? I want her home.
  • I live in AZ w/ parents in Florida. Mom recently hospitalized, (treatment for previously diagnosed cancer, terminal) & signed papers for 'Hospice' while heavily medicated w/ morphine. Now bills are thru the roof as Medicare is not covering previously covered expenses. Mom is not "in" hospice care, just using 'pain management for medication'. She is still at home. Where can we get counsel as she signed papers without knowing change in coverage?
  • My townhouse has water damage from a pipe leak. Landlord sent maintenance guy to fix pipe. 6 days later sent a mold specialist to check for moisture but not mold. Sent maintenance guy back to take out dry wall and pull up carpet. Did not secure room where water damage was to ensure that if there is mold in the wall it was contained did not remove all of the wet areas that the mold specialist recommended. What are my rights? How can I legally make sure that they handle this health and safety issue properly because they are clearly cutting corners and not using certified specialists.
  • What is the definition of Conservatorship? Consent of parent to conservatorship of a minor child and waiver of notice.
  • My downstairs rental had water damage caused by the upstairs empty rental where the water was not turned off. Parts of the ceiling and walls had to be removed and a restoration team had to dry the wall. Being a home worker and this a very small place, I found a temporary rental. This happened mid-month, I was out for 2 weeks and now I am being asked to pay full rent on the first under the reason that I choose to be out. I have not been answered on when the place will be made whole again and if it would be of consideration to adjust for the days I was not living there. No answer was given,
