  • Hello, Is there a basic description of what child support is supposed to cover in the state of AZ? My ex is insisting that I pay her more than the child support and alimony that she receives, which is $5,500 per month. She wants me to pay for the kid's cell phones, cars, etc. I have explained to her that I do not agree to these things and these are not part of child support. Any feedback would be useful.

  • Since July we have had a scorpion problem. We have continuously notified the office by letter each time we find a scorpion, we have even brought some into the office. The manager agreed to let us break our lease without payment on our behalf with a 30 day notice. 5 days after the agreement was made that manager had been let go and a new manager took over who had no idea about the agreement. Now they are saying the old manager did not take the proper steps to let us break our lease and refuses now to let us leave. We have 3 children under 8,I am pregnant and my husband was stung. What now?

  • I leased house and signed an agreement before doing a walkthrough. I told him I could begin moving the next day, but decided to wait until repairs and cleaning are done. The property manager said it would take a week to do repairs. He will not change the move in date, which will cost me $300 for a week I am not there. Can I withhold a week’s rent next month for the delay or am I bound by the lease date?
