QUESTIONS

  • Can an Apartment landlord legally go through the tenants trash in the dumpster in the building?
  • I went to court on the 17th on the judgment was that I had to be out by 23 May so does that mean that I had there going to lock my apartment on the 23rd or does that mean that they can send the paperwork to lock my apartment on the 23rd when do I need to be out of my house .

  • I am an unwed mother, who filed for restraining order against the father, a few months after the birth of our son. I understand that I am legally the sole custodian until we establish paternity. The father is in the birth certificate. If let’s say, I lost all contact and have no idea where the father is since we had a restraining order, how will I reach him if I decide one day to go to court and file abandonment and hope to obtain a sole custody written court order?
  • We notified landlord we are terminating our lease that is effective through September 08. We actually vacated the house June 11. We asked landlord to find another tenant that could move in before out lease is up so we can get out of our lease early. Landlord said they were looking for new tenant but then said they wanted their friends to move in Jan. 09. They are playing with our money now by not looking for a new tenant. Can they do that?
  • if I’m getting a restraining order against my roommate and she goes to get one before me on false terms because I’m getting one. Will the judge serve me with hers while i am in court trying to get mine? We have an apartment together and i think she is doing it to Get off of our lease.

  • If my apartment has been broken into while I was at home sleeping in the middle of the night and a police report has been made and another night when my car was vandalized a police report was made and another night a neighbors car was broken into, the same complex a police report was made, Do I have the right to break my lease without penalty by the landlord?
  • my daughter is mother to my grandson. She is an amazing mother. However, due to my grandson's father not committing to sharing parental responsibilities, I have provided an abundance of caregiving when my daughter is not available due to working etc. I absolutely don't mind however, it has financially affected my business and time. May I legally sue my grandson's father for childcare?
  • After I moved from my rental property, my landlord claimed there was damage to the property that needed repair and kept half my security deposit. Now he says the repairs cost more and I have to pay him back to additional cost. Can he do that after half the deposit has already been returned?
