QUESTIONS

  • I recently moved into condo. I recieved notice from the HOA stating that my dog is over 30 lbs (which is apparently not allowed). However, both the realtor and landlord approved of me having my dog which is specified in our lease agreement. Can I be asked to leave?
  • My husband & I are caring for my infant niece due to both her parents being in prison. We filed a "Petition by Non-Parent to Establish Legal Decision-Making in Loco Parentis A.R.S 25-41 (Case # DO201300119) in Cochise County and her monther was served on Feb 13 (she wasn't contesting it). I called the County clerk office to find out what my next step is and they told me they can't tell me what to do. I thought I had done what needed to be done and it would now go before a judge to be finaled? Please advise, we have to get this legalized for insurance purposes, etc. THANK YOU!
  • How much are the fees for changing my name?
  • I am defending myself in a case. I have a witness who gave a recorded statement to my insurance company. The witness gave permission to my insurance company to release the recording to anyone wishing to investigate the incident. Can I use this recording in court as evidence? Does the witness need to be present in order for me to use the recording? The witness may not be able to appear in court and that is why I am asking.
  • Hi I recently moved into a rental home and things are continuously going wrong. We went without A/C for 4 days before it was fixed, the electrical sockets in the bathroom go on and off continuously on their own for days at a time and we have a toilet that leaks. At what point can we terminate a lease and still get our security deposit back? The landlord expects these things to be fixed by us first then her then a professional. I know nothing about electrical things so now its her turn to look before a professional each time takes days-weeks to fix.
  • Do I qualify for food stamps if I own a mobile home?
  • If I want to sign away my rights to my children so that they can be adopted by their stepfather,what steps do I need to take? How do I petition the court, or am I able to even do this?
  • My wife and I were married in Phoenix a year ago, and now we would like to get a divorce. However, both of us are working abroad. Can we get a divorce or an annulment? Can we have a lawyer represent us and fly back for the court dates?
  • My daughter's father has abandoned her for the last 6 years. Can I file for termination of parental rights and how do I do so.
