QUESTIONS

  • I have a 3 year old son we are both Navajo, I havent seen or been with my sons dad shortly after my son's birth. When I was 7 months pregnant we had a dv issue and I would like to terminate his rights. How do i go about that?
  • How do you get the cost of a name change fee waived. I am on disability. Are there certain papers I need to show proof of income and if so which ones. How is a waive determined at the time of filing and who decides?
  • My 16 year old son was taken to the emergency room for taking pills and scratching his arm. There is no disputing that he needs inpatient care to help with his depression. The hospital has been very helpful, but are telling us that he may be transfered to a facility that we are not comfortable sending him to. What rights do we have when it comes to making sure that he goes to a facility we have investigated and approve of? We do not want him to go to a place that has terrible staff and facility reviews, and are looking out for his best interest.
  • If I am renting a house and it went into foreclosure without our knowledge and has been auctioned off, what rights do I have to stay in the house?
  • What forms does my husband need to file to get visitation of his daughters, the mother is in AZ and we are in NV. She is threatening to leave the state and not let him know where she is going. She has medical conditions and went to jail for domestic violence, even had her eldest daughter taken away because she abused her
  • I moved out of an apt without having a walk through but I took several pictures. Two weeks later I received a letter stating they were keeping my pet deposit and that I owed them an additional amount of money. I disagree with some of the charges they have. How can I dispute this and what is my time limit? They have given me 30 days to pay before sending to collections. Also, can the landlord charge for painting the interior? I even filled in any holes made from hanging pictures. Don't they have to paint anyway?
  • iS THERE A LAW THAT STATES THAT A SINGLE WOMEN WHO HAS A SON HAS TO LIVE IN A HOME WITH AT LEAST 2 BEDROOMS.
  • My home has a lien placed on it from my HOA, my question is, Will the lien ever expire? Can they keep adding interest ? Can I lose my home, over 6000, which mostly are Lawyer fees, this all came about after 2 month late fees, which would be 30.00. At this point, I am barely able to pay bills, which I do, and have for many years, I am stressing over the notion of losing my home? Thank you for any info or help.
  • I got an eviction notice for non-payment of rent. I filed ch.7 bankruptcy and my rent is due 6/1, but i'm moving out so do i have to pay my 6/1 rent?
  • My husband is in the army and is stationed in S. Korea until March of 2012. We have a 3 year old daughter who lives with me. My husband informed me that he wants a divorce. He's going to see if he can get one started on the base where he's stationed. Can he do that? Also, should I file for legal separation now, or do I need to wait until he's back. He's very irresponsible with money and I'm afraid he will incur more debt before we're divorced.
