QUESTIONS

  • My a/c has gone out 6 times in the past 2 months. Maint. Comes and "fixes" it but the same problem keeps happening. What can I do legally to get it fixed/replaced?
  • I'm older than 21 and I think I need glasses. Does ahcccs (health choice)cover anything to do with that?
  • we are planning to buy a manufactured home in a 55+ community. My question is if my husbands name is the only one on the manufactured home and he dies can they make me move out and how could I sale the manufactured home if I wanted to.
  • What are the laws regarding overtime pay? when is an employer exempt from paying overtime?
  • I have my 17 yr old disabled son his mother gave him to me so now he lives with me I'm not on the birth certificate Ineed to know how do iI get on his birth certificate I've already done paternity test for D.E.S and I pay child support.
  • I rent a house that is in foreclosure. the landlord does not know that i am aware . The house is being put up for auction in 60 days. Am I within my legal rights to withhold rent so I can find another place to live? Can he try to evict prior to the auction due to unpaid rent?
  • I am sending this for my mother. My dad left her his retirement to her but nothing else. She has about $25,000 in credit card debt (they bought a vehicle using a credit card with a 2% interest)and has an income of about $4,277 including retirement, veterans benefits and ss. Everything was fine until ill health made it impossible for her to live alone. She sold her mobile home, put the $$ in savings and moved into a senior apartment. She has recently moved into a more expensive assisted care living. Her income is enough to pay her rent but we still have to pay her $600 a month credit cards bills that my dad left her with. She only has about $1,100 in saving so either she files for bankrupcy or she just doesn't pay her credits cards anymore. She does use her credit cards so bad credit will not hurt her. I am sure that her current living location will not kick her out as long as she is paying her rent. What will happen if she doesn't pay her credit card bills anymore?
  • I am 74 with over $30,000 in CC debt. How do I get out of debt so I can retire. I work fulltime, but afraid of unexpected health problems. My husband has less than $800 per month from SS. I have no other debt other than CC and household expenses. Own 3 late model cars and home which are all paid for in full. I have enough life insurance to pay off my debt, but bad health could put me and my family in trouble. What to do?
  • I have received a 14/30 day letter to fix an electrical issue which I am trying to address. I am also trying to sell my mobile home. There is now a broken sewer line that runs under my home which is part of the park infrastructure. They are refusing to fix and said they would fix it I sell my home. No prudent buyer wants a home with now water/sewer. What do I do?
  • If I marry, will my spouse be responsible for any of my depts made prior to our marrage?
