QUESTIONS

  • My friends want to give me custody of their 2 year old son, since neither is stable enough at the moment. We all agree that if we can do this, that they should still be in his life as his parents. How would we be able to go about this? Would we be able to have joint custody between the parents and a non-parent?
  • My son's father isn't on the original birth certificate do I have to get a new one if he was proven to be the father.
  • I have a question concerning FBI federal background checks. Is it true that the state only reports arrests to the FBI if there are fingerprints? If I have a dismissed misdemeanor, which did not require my fingerprints or an arrest, will the record be sent to the FBI?
  • When my son was arrested somehow he was wrongfully charged. It shows the wrong charges on the Az Court Records Search. I asked our attorney at the time to get the wrong charges removed but as we found out today, he did not do that... What can we do to get this taken care of? Who actually sits at a computer and puts these charges on the records search for any one to see?
  • I was granted a divorce in Arizona in 1998, my husband never paid child support or alimony. Can I request the court to get him to pay it to me now, even though it is years later?
  • My water heater broke and it took me about 2 hours to even reach my landlord. After having no emergency fire company come out she finally sent someone . It is a Thursday and I do not have any source of hot water and I am being told it won't be fixed until Monday which is 5 days without hot running water. Is this legal in Arizona ?
  • My ex & I have 50/50. we split in 5/15, he moved in his gf two months after I left. He since has been trying to get my son (2.5yrs) to call her mom. He took him out of the babysitter care w/o my knowledge or agreement, put him in a daycare of his choosing so his gf could have access to my son. He wouldn't let me know where he was enrolled. Once I did they wouldn't give me an update because he didn't list me on the pwork. He takes him to rndm clinics so I won't have access to his records. & I just found out she was arrested for domestic violence while my son was there. What can I do help!
  • I listed my granddaughter as 18 month old. No fence or gate was around the pool from back doors of home, as required by permit under AZ Law. The lessor had a real estate agent as did we. The lease was broken, accepted by the lessor. The lessor does not want to refund $3,900.00 security deposit. The exterior fence from driveway also was not self closing either and we have pictures of both. Did the lessor break the AZ law by entering into a legal contract and not have a Permitted, Inspected fence and self closing gate around the pool, Knowing an 18 month old be occupying the leased home?
  • I was involved with a woman and broke things off, she went and filed an order of protection last year, I wanted to fight it judge said if I did I would lose my gun rights, so it was modified so I could keep my gun and rights. That expired last year in July 2013. Today I was served again with another order of protection, Again all reasons listed are False! And now I have to turn over my gun. How can one fight the order of protection without losing gun, gun rights? How can one fight these false allegations? I don't want anything to do with this woman, She is telling lies to court to get order!
  • The Manager says I have to fix my driveway because it is crumbling and full of holes that were there when I rented their lot 20 years ago and now are worse because the driveway was thin and inferior. I have not signed a document that says I am responsible for the repair of their driveway. Do I have to repair their driveway?
