QUESTIONS

  • I gave my ex verbal notice of my relocation with my 4 year old, 2 mos prior to the relocation. He was receptive and understood my reasoning. I sent a letter cert. mail and it was returned to me because he failed to pick it up. So I then hired a process server, which was successful. Its now 4 days before my moving date and he has served me w/ a summons to establish parenting time and custody. My position at work has already been filled and I'm to be out of my apartment by the 5th. Am i obligated to stay in the state now? Or can i temporarily relocate?
  • I am taking a corporation to small claims court. does that mean their statutory agent is part of the defendence ? I will have to compete with a lawyer ?
  • My house was due for a short sale. We had a buyer with good faith money down. The loan servicing company let the time frame lapse, did not respond to my realtor's requests, and sold the loan service subsidiary to Goldman Sachs the week after,and they took it to foreclosure. Now I have a lawyer for the HOA hounding me for $4000. The bank that owns my former property just listed it again for the price we ( my realtor and myself ) had it sold for originally. What do I do about the HOA problem? This was in Arizona. I am now living in Colorado.
  • I am renting a condo with a washing machine and dryer. The washing machine and dryer have only worked 6 out of the 9 months of my lease. The landlord replaced the appliances a few months ago, but they are now malfunctioning and flooding my kitchen when I try and do a load of laundry. A tech has been out twice to look at it, and claims there is no problem. I have asked the landlord for a break in rent this month due to the aggravation, as well as the fact that I am paying for a condo unit with a working washer and dryer. I can't get a response from my landlord or the realty company.
