QUESTIONS

  • If someone puts an order of protection or a restraining order against me, it is good for 1 year from service. But how long after does it stay on my personal file.
  • My new husband has three children that live out of state and according to the divorce papers from his previous marriage, they share joint custody. After the divorce was final in Indiana, she moved without contacting him about this move. She has not let him know where the kids are for almost six years. He pays child support every month and has no contact with them. How do we go about finding the kids to have contact with them?
  • I got a 90-day notice to vacate the premises I have got one month left I have to be out the end of April and now with the stuff going around and the governor ordering you to stay at home do I have any rights to vacate the premises or what should I do
  • I was arrested an charged with assault. It was all based on a lie that my ex-gf told the police. My lawyer proved the lie and the charges were dropped. I spent 4 days in jail, lost my job, and spent over $10000 in legal fees. PPD won't go back and charge her. She has little money, but I want some justice. I was thinking about small claims court since I can do that on my own. Does that court handle pain and suffering claims?
  • My son turned 16 and quit going to high school can child support be stopped if he is no longer enrolled in school
  • I bought a new car on February 4 2012, I traded in my other car and gave them 2500 in cashiers check. I called them on February 10 to find out what's going on finance guy said having trouble finding loan, I told him I would be down to get my car and money, he said no we are going to give you more money for your trade, promised to call me Saturday No one called. I called them Monday, finance guy said he would call me February 14th by 5 well that's come and gone. After 10 days do they have to technically finance to loan in house if can't find bank, can I call deal off and get car,money
  • My Wife, who I do not plan on divorcing, told me she was taking our two kids to California for a vacation. She is now stating she is keeping the kids and not coming home. Does she have the right to keep our kids out of state?
  • My husband & I moved to AZ from MI 3 yrs ago.We have had custody of his son since 2006. We we granted a chnge in domicile in 2008. Can we file for a change in jurisdiction? His parenting time is one week for spring break,one week for christmas and 6 weeks during summer.If we can file for change in jurisdiction, do we file in AZ or MI?
  • The ac went out in our house rental at 1:30am, so I had to get myself and two small children to a hotel. We ended up staying for two nights before the AC was repaired. The landlords said they won't/don't reimburse for the hotel. I'm confused because it says in the Tenant/Landlord act that money can be withheld from rent if substitute house has to be found if the rental is uninhabitable. I have receipts for the hotel and I took the amount off the rent & now the landlords are looking to either late fee or evict me. Can they do that?! I really scared as I have two small kids & no where to go.
  • I was married thru the Catholic Church. Got divorced thru the state 5 years ago, but have not gone thru the church to get the marriage annulled. Legally, do I need to do this before I remarry?
