QUESTIONS

  • I got married, but my Marriage certificate still has my old name. Has my Name changed automaticly after marriage or do I have to do something to get the Last Name of my Husband?
  • Is there a law that protects the renter of a mobile home space from eviction from eviction if the renter is medically incapable of paying rent?
  • If i have always had a savings account under my name only can the other party claim it?
  • We live in a small private property community with private roads. Every morning and afternoon we are over loaded and blocked in by parents using our neighborhood to drop off and pick up kids. They ignore all our signs and block anyone from getting in or out safely. We have buses that come and get our kids and they can’t get around the neighborhood because of the parking on both sides of the road. The street are more narrow as they are private and we pay for all up keep. We know we can block the roads off but what else can be done to get those people out and off our streets?
  • When my 3 year old daughter was born her father refused to sign the birth certificate, he requested a paternity test be done through the state, after paternity was established they then established child support , my question is because he has not filled out any forms asking to amend her birth certificate or acknowledge paternity does he still have rights? I'm getting married and would like to have my new husband adopt her (i know her bio father will no longer be responsible for child support) and everything was done through DES.
  • How can I obtain my mothers birth certificate from Mexico?
  • The father of my son has his name on the birth cirtificate and also my son has his last name. But over the last 6 months, his father has shown no real interest in wanting to see him and hasn't helped pay for any expenses. My question is, is there anyway I can get my sons last name changed to mine so his father can't decide to come back into the picture a few years from now and try to get custody?
  • My husband is homeless and does not really have an address. I mailed the acceptance of service plus the divorce papers to him at his last known addressvia certified mail. If I get the papers back unclaimed or undelivered can I file this along with asking for a default or do I have to go by publication? I cannot afford all these fees. I did get a deferral for the court fees but did not check for publication fees. Publication sounds like it is a hard and delaying process. I hear some saying I can file if I get the certified green card back as proof of service or even if the papers come back unclaimed. We have three kids and I am asking for sole custody.
  • if Im not married to my daughters mother but have been supporting her for 16 years if I leave do I need to pay alimony to her?
  • After living at our current Apartment for well over a year I was offered employment by the Property Manager. I accepted the FT employment began working for the same company that I rent from. As an employee I received a discounted rent then what is stated on my current and active lease. After stating concerns regarding Fair Housing laws not being followed to the Property Manager I was terminated on a false accusation of theft. In my Letter of Termination it states I have less then 7 days to vacate the property as it is a benefit of employment. I lived here before I worked here can she do this?
