QUESTIONS

  • What needs to happen to get a divorce decree modified as to custody. What are the determining factors - proof of immediate danger to the children? For instance I hate the guy my ex married and I think hes a terrible guy - he had a questionable past including a short time in jail. Is that enough to modify custody?
  • Rent $750 is due on 1st of the month. Tenant paid $100 on 7-6 & $400 on 7-8, promising to pay balance next day. 7-20 still no payment. issued written demand today. Do I have to wait to issue 5 day eviction after making written demand? What option do I have, if any?
  • My daughter is 2 1/2 when she was born I was with a man who is not her father and he signed the birth certificate and took claim for her until we split a year ago. I want him off the birth certificate and to change her last name. What papers do I need to file? How would I go about doing this? He has not had contact with her in over 6 months and I can’t even contact him anymore.
  • I am in veterans court and I had to enter a guilty plea to stay in the program, who gets to see my guilty plea?
  • I am a veteran I tried to attempt suicide 11 months ago and I am currently ordered to pay child support but the way life is going I think its in the best interest of the kids to not have a relationship with me because of my mental health problems and major financial issues. How to I go about giving up all parental rights and financial obligations without having to discuss my suicide attempt in court? I just want to let them live a happy life and not worry about me because I plan on moving away in the next few months.
  • I own one rental property, a townhome. Due to financial difficulties, I must sell it. What are the tenants rights while it is listed for sale?What are my rights to show it to potential buyers? If it sells before the lease is up, what can be done if the new owner wants the property to be vacant?
  • My landlord has sold the house I am renting. I have 10 months left on the lease. The new home-owner is not buying the house as "occupied". I have agreed to move out. Do the old homeowners owe me any sort of compensation because they broke the lease (comparable to what I would owe if I were the one breaking the lease)? I had about 1 weeks notice. Thanks!
  • I live in an apartment complex that is slated to be sold to new owners at the end of this month. The new owners are planning major repairs and upgrades, resulting in a major rent increase. My current lease is for another six months. I cannot afford higher rent, nor coming up with first/last/deposit etc quickly for a new place. What are my rights? Do the new owners have to "buy" out my current lease?
  • My cousin has a 14 month old boy and she has joint physical and legal custody with her ex husband. She has him the first half of the week and he is supposed to have him the last half of the week as per the court. The ex-husband has not seen his child in over 3 months, because he doesn't want to pick up the kid anymore and has told my cousin every week that he is busy with something else and can not take him. He mentioned to her recently that he just wants to give up the child because he doesn't want to be a father anymore. Is it even possible for him to give up parental rights completely?
  • I have a baby together w my girlfriend. I am the father, my name is on BC and my 7 mo old daughter has my last name. Girlfriend left with my daughter, staying at her grandmother's who has told me I'm not a good enough provider to father my little girl. What are my rights? I want to raise my daughter.
