QUESTIONS

  • An employee who dislikes me filed a false claim against me saying I swore at him. Hr brought in an invstigator without telling me and made me answer questions and then I was told I would have to take a polygraph. What are my rights. I have been a high achieving employee for 9 years and was offered a promotion last week. Now I think they want to fire me and it has ruined my credibility.
  • My mother recently passed away with no will and no power of attorney. She had a checking account that has me as a signatory. It was all her money and I've paid her funeral expenses, etc. from it. Can I use the money that is left for my own purposes?
  • What if they have the last name wrong does it still stand
  • How long do i have to notify the other party of a pay change and how do i go about notifying them?
  • I have a friend who wants DNA done on a child. He has already been ordered topay child ssupport. Plus he wants to sign his rights of all 3 kids over to the mother. She has a restraining order against him and has had him arrested before for domestic violence. He doesn't want to keep going to jail because she wants to take away everything he has. Can he sign his rights over?
  • In July I went to SALA to see about filing bankruptcy. I am behind on everything due to unemployment and medical bills for my son. The lawyer I saw said not to at this point because I make too little to garnish,and sent me home with some pamphlets. Now my HOA has sued and won and is putting a lein on my house.I will never be able to make the payment they are asking for. My house is free and clear. Can the HOA still take my home and leave my kids and I homeless? Or are they bound by the homestead law? Thank you.
  • I just moved from another state and my old lanlord has not paid me back my deposit yet. I spoke to hime 2 months ago and he said he would send me my deposit in the mail; I still havent received it and he won't answer or return my call. What am I able to do now that I'm in another state?
  • My Mother lived in and owned property in Sun City, AZ for about 30 yrs. She had two living children whom have had a rather toxic relationship. She had a living trust and her son is named Successor Trustee. In 2003 she suffered a small stroke and (while still mentally alert) she had a problem with her speaking ability. As a result, she retired as Trustee and named her son who divides his time between New Mexico and Alaska. Her son physically relocated her to New Mexico about 10 months before she passed in Feb. 2011. He had sold her property in AZ in Sept 2010 but moved all her personal belongings to his property in NM prior to that date. Her remains are interred in AZ. Which state would have jurisdiction if a probate proceeding is necessary? (i.e.- Say the Successor Trustee fails to act?)
  • Where can I find curfew laws?
  • If I think that you have a "disability," what "reasonable accommodation" does your company have to make?

STORIES
