QUESTIONS

  • My ex-husband was ordered to pay child support to me when we divorced in 2003. The state this was issued in was Nevada. Since then, we had both relocated individually to California, and now I am currently residing in Arizona since 09/07. Unfortunately, the payments were made by personal check, if at all, and now I do not know where he lives or what his telephone number is. Is there any way to collect child support now for my 2 children?
  • After foreclosure involving a single family residence the new owner filed an unlawful detainer action against the tenants who had no rental agreement after serving them with a 90 day notice to quit. The tenants refuse to move and have not paid rent.They only had a month to month oral agreement with the former owner. One of the tenants claims that he is on parole and cannot be evicted. Is this a valid defense to the UD action?
  • WE have paid a photographer $600 for items he has never provided and he now refuses to speak to us. We are based in the UK but I have family in Arizona who will attend on my behalf and we feel that a simple claim might just be ignored. Question is : How can we best ensure that we will have maximum clout when approaching the reclaimation of our monies? If your answer is to employ a lawyer, may we have a list local to Tucson, thank you

  • my tenant moved out Feb 1st w 4 months left on lease. I simply received a text stating she moved, the keys were in the kitchen, no explanation, nor any request for repair, she would not return my phone calls. does a text qualify as written notice to vacate. lease required 60 days notice. the tenant at neighboring property I rent was arrested, an inaccurate article appeared in the paper now the lease breaker wants her entire deposit refunded. I re-leased her property, sent her a deposit refund less prorated rent to re-lease date, late fee, minimum cleaning charge, per lease. she reported nothin
  • My 4 year old daughters Father and I have joint custody but since she was 1 year and 6 months he only asks for her every 6-8 months. Is this a form of child neglect? Would asking to sign over his rights as a parent be the next step?
  • My question is I suffer from depression. Just got married can my mom or family member commit me voluntary and sign papers or does my new husband can only do that. I have gone to rehab when I was younger before for a week I was committed allowed by my insurance. Do I need to have him do a notary paper. My mom always threatens to have me put away and laughs. Like a game or something. Thank you Sandra
