QUESTIONS

  • My husband who participated in illegal drugs once in a while before we got married had become an addict. We haven't been married a year. Domestic abuse has occurred numerous times with me too afraid to call on him. However, they are getting worse. His name is the one in the house and he threatens to kick me out. Would this be grounds for annulment?
  • If my son turns 18 in April does the father continue to have full custody?
  • Can my landlord evict me for any reason at all?
  • How do I answer to a complaint in a civil justice court? Is memorandum in response or memorandum in reply the same as a response/answer?
  • I want to live with my aunt who lives a town away from my parents. My mom won't let Move but I have my Aunts permission to live with her is it legal to move out without my parents permission? My aunt is a safe place too.
  • We were paying our electricity through our apartment complex. They would bill it to us each month with our rent with a 50 dollar service fee. Last month they didn't bill us for it and it wasn't in our bill, so we were waiting until they gave us the bill or it was just added on to next months payment and/or rent. They did add it on to the next months rent/bill and we usually pay the 3rd if every month which isn't late. They turned off our power without any notice AT ALL on the second. They didn't give any warning what so ever. Is that legal?!
  • If your apartment floods due to the negligence of another apartment owner and you are required to move into a model unit temporarily, is rent still owed? I have read that rent for that current month is not but what if it takes longer than 30 days to fix the apartment?
  • I just got the keys to my new place. Long story short the neighbor and his company made my girlfriend fear for her safety. When we were leaving I took the way out by his unit and he stopped my car at gunpoint because he "thought I was someone else". I want nothing to do with this place now! What can I do?
  • Was I was recentlyevictedand need to know my rights the court date was ruled in her favor due. To the fact i was in a mental health care facility.the ruling was in abstentia what rights do i have as far as my property ?
  • If I was married when I adopted my daughter and I was the only one to sign the papers that day because my husband had to work, does my husband have any legal rights to our daughter?
