QUESTIONS

  • my mother has guardianship of my daughter and i need to establish visitation rights for myself and my husband for our divorce
  • My ex-husband sent me a letter from prison, telling me he hired a lawyer to get a judge to ORDER me to take our 2 kids to see him. I have sole custody, and I had told him that i am not going to take them to a prison to visit him. When he was out, he never put any effort to see our kids, he only does this when he's in prison. Is is possible for him to get a court order to force me to take the kids to see him in prison?
  • I have had a roof leak for 3 months, gradually worsening despite the manager's claim if was repaired. I have photo documentation as well as emails. I'm done begging, I want to break my lease and move...should I send a 10 day notice of landlord noncompliance? I'm also worried about mold. thanks, Mike
  • I signed a 7 month lease which was up on July 4th. I asked for an extra month after my lease expired and they said, no problem. I went in to pay this months rent and they ask me to pay almost $300 more for the extra month. I told them I was not told of an increase in rent and I don't have the extra money for this. Is this legal for them to raise the rent without any kind of notice? They also put a 5 day notice on my door.

  • My husband of 20 years met a woman on the internet, moved her from Florida to Arizona, and put her up in an apartment.
