QUESTIONS

  • My ex husband and I filed joint custody over our daughter. he was to pay the joint custody fee but as of yet hasn't. it's been about 8 months now. can he still pay it? What happens does one parent have more rights over the other? can I get full custody and he have visitation? help please!
  • I get a news letter the first of the month stating maintenance day is 1/21/15. Is that legal notice. They come in twice that day. Once to change the a/c filter, check smoke alarm and look for drippy faucets. They come back to do monthly pest control. It is anywhere from 8 to 5. Lately they have even looked in the refrigerator during this inspection.
  • I married a 16-Year Old female (I was 23) last year legally with proper parental consent. I was curious to know what my guardianship/consent rights are when it comes to my spouse being served legal paperwork or court orders by anyone, including myself. She was not emmancipated before our marriage, and I've had to legally be there to sign on her behalf for reasons such as school signup and notarizing items, so I know that I have some consent.
  • I received a letter from an attorneys office stating that the home I am renting has been forclosed on.  How long do I have before being evicted? How do I recoup my deposit if I do not withold rent?
  • I rent a condo from the owner. The landlord has sent 4 serviceman to fix my 23 year old ac unit that has been non stop leaking on 7/4( now 7/28). Each saying the ac simply needs to be replaced. I have numerous bowls out bc it leaks in different areas. The hallway is a hazard and unsightly . He has come to terms it needs replaced. What time frame am I entitled to have the replacement done timely ? Also is it my responsibility to meet the repairman if the landlord cannot accommodate my work schedule?
  • I started Beauty School in Sept 07, I was 17 at the time.The school had me sign for the loan without a co-signer. My parents filled out the paper for the Pell Grant and wanted to pay so much monthly. The school said I had to have a Subsidized Stafford loan to get the Pell Grant.Am I responsible for the loan? Since I was told afterwards that it was not a legal binding contract due to my age and that neither one of my parents co-signed on it?
  • I am a single mother trying to join the military. My recruiter told me i must give up custody or file a family care plan before i enlist i was wondering if it would be hard getting custody back if i give it up?
  • I have a daughter who just graduated high school and is going to be 18 in 3 weeks. I am moving out of state be for then. Is there any way for her to get her own apartment. She is also a full time college student and a part time worker. she makes enough to pay rent with no worry what so ever.
  • What is the Statute of Limitations on a bench warrant? There was one issued in 2003 against my cousin. Is it still valid? What legal steps do we take to get it taken care of?
