QUESTIONS

  • We've been renting our house for 5 years and our AC/Heat bills have always been high. We just found out that the garage that our landlord converted into a bedroom has no insulation. Does this room legally need to be insulated? And if so, is he responsible to refund us a portion for the unusually high bills?
  • When my daughter who is not 4 was born. Her father was not present. We are now married. I never filed for a BC while at the hospital cause I was still deciding a name. Well I have her name now. She has my last name. But I never filed for her BC. My mistake. But being as I never filed for it. It was just my name on the hospital paper work. Me and her father are together and we got married. I went to file for her BC with his name on there of coarse and the sent the paper work back to me saying the information is not correct or the same as the certificate. How so? When I do not have her BC yet?
  • My father was arrested for stealing a swamp cooler turns out it didn't even work my question is Bond was set at $50,000 is that legal he's never been arrested in his life no criminal history he lied to the police officer about the swamp cooler he's being charged with a felony why would bond be set so high he's not a Flight Risk he owns his own house in that town
  • I already divorced my x husband and he gave me alimony for 3yrs he is a retired u.s navy my question is do I have part of his retirement pension? We are married for 15yrs.
  • I have been renting this house for 9 months now and within the nine months the sewage lines have backed up bringing feces up through the showers bathtub toilets sinks and in the front yard. Every time I call a send a plumber to flush the system the plumber say it is a palm tree that has been there before I moved in has busted the main sewage line. I have five children three that have asthma and I know that it is not safe for them to be in that condition. Is there anything I can do to get them to fix the main line or let me out my lease?
  • I was granted full legal and physical custody of my two children. Their mother is allowed visits that I have increased to full weekend overnights, but now she is threatening legal action because I wont give her anything she wants. I have suspended visits because she has a delicate mental state and I dont want her rage towards me to hurt the children. She has a history of suicide attempts, bi-polar disorder, and neglect both of herself and the kids. She says it is against the law to deny her wishes and me having custody means nothing but a placeholder until she "takes them back". Am I wrong?
  • In Arizona, can I move out at the age of sixteen with parental consent? I plan to move to Wyoming, I will have a place to live immediately upon arrival. I will have a part time job and plan on graduating high school.
  • where is the food stamp office located?
  • We have lived in a rental since 2009. Two years ago, the house was sold to a new owner and now we have a property management company that we talk to. (Prior was family friend owner). There is a large Tree in the back yard, over 30 ft tall, that has been maintained by the previous owner personally and by some people the property management sent over three different times since taking over the property. Due to a recent storm, the tree has broken branches 20 + feet in the air. The property management company was notified and have told me its my responsibilty. Is this true or not?
  • I had heard that if you receive 3 consecutive days off (of your scheduled 5 days), you can qualify for Unemployment Compensation. I am a full time employee and am averaging 1-2 days a week. Can I qualify?
