QUESTIONS

  • my son was required to observe a criminal court docker in circuit court. He has to write a report about it and answer four questions. We don't understand one of the questions. Can you tell me what this question is asking? What have learned from this observation about the rights I am afforded and the responsibilities I have towards others?
  • What is definition of medically necessary transportation?
  • I have been divorced for 10 years. My 12 year old daughter recently told me her dad was driving drunk and ran off the road with her in the car. She didn't tell me until she returned after their visit. What should I do? He would take it out on her if I confront him, but I need to protect her. This isn't the first time he has driven her after drinking.
  • What is the process for adding my father to my birth certificate, as an adult?
  • Can an arrest for domestic violence be expunged that occured 1996 where the case was dropped. No physical violence ocurred and no injury ever happened.
  • New York has a property tax exemption or deferment plan for those whose income is under 13k a year and you must be 70. does Arizona have the same program? if so, it's well hidden from public.
  • I signed a month to month lease, but my landlord is now claiming that she made a "clerical error" and meant for the written agreement to be a year lease. She is not honoring my 30 day notice that I gave her in writing and claims I can not move out in a month. Can I pay my final month's rent and move out without penalty, and how can I ensure that she returns my deposit without taking her to court?
  • I am the guardian of my 2 grandchildren (their mother is my oldest daughter) she had been in a domestic violence situation with the kids dad (he is in prison until July 2016) she lives with friends, no job, possible drugs. He does drugs and has a new girlfriend pregnant. I do not want either of them to obtain children EVER. What can I do to protect the kids and myself since Arizona tends to want to reunite children and parents. This is not a good idea with either of the biological parents. I love them to much to have them suffer. Guardian since 2010, they are age 9 and 6. suggestions?
  • I'm writing this for my brother-in-law. His son has power of attorney and he cannot get a copy. How can he get a copy and isn't the power of attorney written for a specific time frame and specific event?
  • I am currently married to the alcoholic mother of my 14 year old daughter. She has 2 arrests for domestic violence and is currently serving a court ordered program for her last offense. I am seeking a divorce and want custody of our daughter, however i travel frequently for my job. Do I have a chance of getting custody of my daughter in the divorce?
