QUESTIONS

  • I was granted a divorce in Arizona in 1998, my husband never paid child support or alimony. Can I request the court to get him to pay it to me now, even though it is years later?
  • I just rented a House in Florence AZ and I recieved a letter of trustee sale or foreclosure. I spoke with the Landlord and his property managment and they want us to stay here. Now the problem is that we were decieved to rent the house. One of the questions ask before the house was rented was if the house was in a foreclosure sale due that the rent was cheap $800. Now the management company is been rude. verbaly and the landlord as well. We told them we want the deposit back and we also told them that we were going to move this month because we do not want to find ourselves in the street when they lock the house. They became extreamly disgruntal about the hole situation, and now the property manager said that she is going to try to get us evicted this week or so, now keep in mind that we paid this month rent already. I need to know what to do cause it is getting very unconfortable. due that I have to little kids living in the house.
  • Is it illegal in the state of AZ to sell/transfer ownership of a used vehicle that has been repaired in an accident without disclosing specifics of vehicle repair history?
  • I am looking to purchase a mobile home on a rented lot. The mobile home has a shattered sliding glass door and the swamp cooler is not working. Are these things the landlord is required to have fixed before I purchase the home? I'm not really concerned about the swamp cooler as I own window units, but concerned about the door. The glass was completely shattered on the mobile side of door, presumably by previous tenant who was evicted.
  • can SS funds be garnished
  • My ex husband recently died am I entitled to any of his property
  • I own my trailer and rent a lot, I got behind in paying my lot fee so am being evicted. What point and time do they(park personel) have the right to go through and take my stuff?
  • 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.
  • My ex husband and I currently have joint custody of our 5 year old. We both don’t have any family here in AZ. I feel it’ll be best for our child to relocate with me back to my home state due to family being there to not only assist in raising but just to know them. I’m also currently in a long distance relationship and pregnant for a man that lives near my family. I’d have a better paying job if I relocated as well. What are my possibilities on being able to relocate our child with me to be with my side of the family(and closer to his side) and also with my soon to be new family?
  • my lease states I have access to the pool. My landlord now is charging to get into the pool. Is this legal?
