QUESTIONS

  • My landlord won’t delay my move out date. I was set to move April 30th but I need to a few more days due to the virus. What can I do since I’ve been denied?
  • My son turns 18 years in a few months. I feel it necessary to move him out of the house when he turns 18. I have heard that it isn't that simple. Can I simply ask him to leave and if he doesn't what are my rights? Since age 16 he has been destructive, disrespectful and has stolen thousands of dollars from us. Police have been involved, therapists, family therapist, case managers etc... The home is in turmoil... It's time for him to go.
  • I got divorced and in the decree it did not grant me permission to change my name. I took the decree to the Soc Sec office and the still processed it. I have a new Soc card and drivers license with my maiden name. But keep having trouble as it was never officially changed in the courts. Do I have to file for a name change and pay the fee or is there a way to add it into the decree so I can officially go back to my maiden name?
