QUESTIONS

  • I been renting for 2 years is it legal for the landlord to higher the rent?
  • My ex-wife and I have joint physical and legal custody of our two children. I carry their health insurance, by court order. My ex-wife has issues with our son at home, which we do not experience in our home. He has anger and agression issues, and is now acting out at school. She took him to a therpist who recommened he be medicated, and she wants him medicated as well. I do not support this, but she said I do not have a say in the situation. She will not provide me with the name of the doctor or drug. Can I file something with the court to keep my son from taking the medicine?
  • My parents have passed away and in their Trust and Wills I am listed as their representative. What do I have to do in order to sell their properties?
  • My apartment charged me $50 dollars a month because electricity was not set through an external account, even if they charged me through their own system, can they enforce this extra fine?
  • i LIVE IN A SENIOR MOBIL HOME PARK, WE HAVE JUST FOUND OUT IT HAS BEEN SOLD AND THE NEW OWNERS ARE BUILDING AN ASSISTED LIVING HERE. WE NEED TO KNOW OUR RIGHTS, WHAT THEY CAN DO TO US. WE OWN OUR OWN MOBILES AND WENT OUR SPACE. WE ARE A VERY OLD SENIOR PARK AND MOST OF US ARE ON A FIXED INCOME. HELP
  • My total income is $15,000 annually from ss retirement. I have $12,000 in checking for which I plan to get dental repairs. I owe $40,000 on credit cards and have not made any payments since 2005. I owe $30,000 to the IRS (irs has declared me "uncollectible"). Will my credit card debt ever disappear? I have never declared bankruptcy. Should I declare bankruptcy now?
  • My husband and I are on food stamps. My husband had a stroke and is the main recipient. I want to quit getting them for myself. Will my husband still be able to get them? We have two fridges and I can keep our food separated. Thank you.
  • Is the cash assistance program only for child support?
  • I never got my daughter's birth certificate. All I have is the one from the hospital. I now live out of state. What do I need to do to get a certified birth certificate?
  • My ex girlfriend and I have a 2 year old son. We were never married. Shortly after we broke up she started seeing a convicted pedophile..she was taking my son to see him in the prison without me knowing. Now she lives in another town about 3 hours away from me and again didn't tell me. And she was also supposed to let the court know when she found herself a job, she never notified the court and she also never told them she was moving. With the fact that she moved and has my son around a pedophile, do I have enough evidence to show why I should get sole custody of my child?
