QUESTIONS

  • Do I have the right to with hold rent for days I wake up with no heat? I remember having same issues last winter. The heat is included in the rent, but that doesn't give them the right to not maintain it properly. I'm sure they will "fix" it again, but it will only be temporary, and I will wake up cold again in a few weeks or so.
  • What is the normal procedure and cost of a name change back to my maiden name? Do I need an attorney?
  • I just rented a new apartment and there has roaches infested in the unit. I notified the manager via text and he already spray the unit but there are still lots of live roaches roaming around the unit after 10 days. Especially at night that they are crawling all over my bed. Can I terminate the lease agreement without holding my rent. And what should I do so in order to break because of habitability issue. thanks
  • How do I go about setting aside my criminal record?
  • me and my husband was in the process of getting a car loan and they called my work place to verify i work there and the office lady at work told the loan place i was on fmla, is my work place aloud to give out that information?
  • My 70 year old mother currently lives in Show Low Arizona and is going to be leaving her husband. Can she file the paperwork via the Internet or can she file it in a court in Phoenix? Also, she is on Social Security and gets a small SSI check. Her husband gets a small SSI check. She makes less than $700 a month - do you know if she will have to pay alimony? She thinks when she moves that she may loose her SSI money and that her husbands amount will increase. Can you please comment on this?
  • I don't know who the father of my son is and there is no father listed on the birth certificate. My boyfriend would like to adopt my son when we marry in October- we have been together for 4 years. How do we start the adoption process?

  • My daughters father has been absent for 5 years. He had a prior court order that allowed him visitation over 5 years ago. He completely stopped taking her or picking her up. Has not contacted her or I since then. She is now 8 and he now wants to see her again and wants shared legal etc. He is also now engaged and had a 2 year old. Is it likely he will just get visitation ? Or will I be able to get full custody ?
