QUESTIONS

  • My husband filed for divorce and I was served the papers. I was unable to go to the court date so divorce was granted by default. Decree says I went to parenting classes which I didn't. Also ex doesnt have to pay child support or alimony even though he left the family and was having affair. Can I file for child support and alimony since we were married for 20+ yrs.? We get adoption subsidy for our daughter and he wants half of that but only has her 48hrs/wk. What can I do?
  • am i able to request that parties on my exhusbands side not be present when we go to court for custody issues

  • I understand the AZ definition of 'set aside a judgment of guilt' but I do not find details such as will I be able to get a HAZMAT endorsement for my CDL licence? Will I be able to work on the air force base when my employer sends me? Those types of details I cannot locate. Thank yo
  • A customer wrote us a check for services rendered and then stopped payment on it. We provided the service and they paid with a check. They never said that there was a problem with the work but the check was returned to us "stop payment". What is our recourse in this matter? Thank You, Phyllis
  • I am being evicted from my home and have court tomorrow, I wont be able to make it to court, and I understand that I will have a judgement placed against me. I have no reason to fight it because i am behind on rent. My question is, how soon after the judgement is made can money be taken from me. I am willing to pay the landlord and make payments but my husband is currently in the hospital recovering from a heart attack and the little bit of money i have in my account has to go towards medication.
  • I was approved for foods stamps but only get 103 a month.My income is only 749 a month.All my money goes for bills. How do they come up with this?It can't be right.
  • I work for a group home w/disabled adults. One of the clients received an I-Pad and the manager of the home wants us to sign a form that states if it ends up missing during your shift, the entire staff will be terminated. Is this even legal. I have not signed it as of yet.
