QUESTIONS

  • I am the mother and legal guardian of my children. My mother does not like my boyfriend who isn't the father of my two eldest children but the father of my youngest. My mother filed for and was granted a protective Order against my boyfriend for my two eldest children. Is this legal?
  • I need help with custody of nonparent information.

  • My boyfriend's grandmother moved in with us about a year ago. We go on vacation in NY every year. She wants to stay here alone. Her doctor said she was no longer able to live alone.I don't want her to stay here alone:. My boyfriend is her POA and he is okay with her staying here while we are gone. My question is if anything happens to her while we are away., such as a fall, fire, break in anything really are we liable? What are the laws on this and where can I find information on my legal responsibility?
  • after signing a plea bargain is there a possibility to appeal? If the police report shows contradictions who do i contact to investigate entrapment?
  • I divorced in Seattle 11 years ago and my ex moved down to Phoenix with my son and I moved down here 5 years ago. He is 13 now and I have always paid child support but I have no record of it, as we did not go through the courts for this. I am getting married in a few months and want to have something signed or some document stating that I have paid child support for the last 13 years and something that shows I continue to pay directly to her every month. Is there something like that here in AZ that will protect me from her stating I never paid?
  • I am 16 years old and I've been through my dad's custody till I was 14 until on November 19 he died and thn my mom got custody but my older sister told her if she got half custody we could get her benefits like insurance wise so at the time I signed the papers and a year passes and my sister has taken it over board she thinks she has full custody and we only se our mom on the weekend or on breaks is that fair? And well I've done some bad things in the past an she uses that against me and my mom can she use that against my mom if my sister wants custody and do I have the right to say no?
