QUESTIONS

  • My exhusband has just been charged with a DUI while my son was in his car. I have a domestic violence conviction against him 3 years ago. He was recently kicked off our son's baseball team as their coach for hitting another child. I have shared (50/50) parenting time and custody. I want to get full custody. I don't know if the courts will give it to me. I don't have the money to spend on full fledged attorney. What are your thoughts....
  • I agreed to purchase a home I believed was owned free and clear by the owner with owner financing. I later learned the owner did not own the home free and clear, and when costly repairs come up he refused to help defray the costs. Was I protected under the tenant landlord act and can he foreclose as he is threatening? I have already moved out and found a new place to live.
  • What is considered poverty level? how do i know if i qualify for the program?
  • What can I do if I feel my 9 year old is not being properly cared for in the other parent's home that I currently share joint custody with? For example, most recently the other parent left our child at a nearby apartment complex pool with another 9 year old completely alone and unsupervised or accompanied by any other adult (the kids were the only ones there) for over an hour while the other parent allegedly walked to a gas station to purchase alcohol. My child also complains that the other parent is using drugs in front of him. Is this considered neglect and what are my options?
  • I am a student and my father and I own a house in Tempe. We are both on the Deed and hold title as Joint Tenancy with Right of Survivorship. I rented a room to a tenant and she and I were the only parties who signed the lease agreement. However, when she moved out, my father signed the move-out letter because she had secured a Restrainer Order against me (I had secured one against her too) so we were to have no contact of any kind with one another. She alleges that the Move Out Letter is invalid since my dad wrote it, signed it and emailed it to her oppose to myself. Is that true?
  • how i can know if my lawyer is good to take my case to trial
  • I am the president of my condominium complex and would like to collect unpaid home owner's association dues (upwards of $2,000) on a home which has been foreclosed upon. Who is responsible for payment and what is the recommended course of action to collect?
  • I hired into a company through a temp agency, this company hires only the white people into their company and puts all of the blacks in a separate room, and they also take jobs from black to give to whites and omit the deficult parts to make easy for them, but would not do this for the blacks, what is my recourse.
  • We issued our tenant a 5-day eviction notice due to non-payment of rent. She claims that legally we must give her extended notice to pay or vacate because she is disabled. Is this true?
  • I planned to utilize 12 weeks of FMLA for the birth and care of my baby. However, the doctor will only allow me 6-8 weeks and then considers me "fit to return to work". The pediatrician cannot give me an addition an excuse for the care of my baby - unless the baby is sick. Legally, can my employer require me to return to work when my doctor says that I am able? How can I extend my leave to 12 weeks?

STORIES

  • I just helped my mother, age 89, deal with her Medicare HMO. . .
