QUESTIONS

  • In 2012-2013 my 80 year old grandmother sold everything she owns to move to Yuma, Az to live with her now husband. He has lived in Az for a few years. Now that he has depleted all of her money and she is ill he now wants to dump her off in a nursing home and move to Canada. What is your state laws on this? I believe if this is allowed to go on in the state of AZ this man will continue to do this to other seniors if he is allowed to get away with this. He has moved her across the country away from all family only to dump her at the state's expense so he can drive back and forth from Yuma to Canada as he pleases!

  • My boyfreind is currently in prison but right before he was taken into custody we found out I was pregnant. Yes it is his and he acknowledges that. He left me with a power of attorney and it is still valid. I want to know can I use the power of attorney to put him as the father on the birth certificate? And how would I do this? would I just sign as if I were him?
  • I'm a school counselor and over the semester I've gotten to know my students. One in particular has a mother in Mexico, and is living home to home currently. Her current living situation is temporary. She's over 14 and wants a stable home. I'm willing and able to be a guardian. Would school policy, district policy, or situations where the child is not related to the guardian be an issue? Would a lawyer be recommended to aid this process?
  • I have been contacted by a collection agency for a debt owed. The amount owed is $226, they say they will only accept payment in full, or 2 payments of $114.33. My question is this, if I am willing to pay this, but can only make small weekly payments, are they required to accept them? What do I do if they refuse my payments that I am able to make.
  • if an ex-spouse passed away and the court order stated that they were to receive 50% of the other spouses retirement. Does that make the order null and void? or does the 50% go into an estate?
