  • The apartment that I moved out of says I owe them money for a variety of things when I moved out. They charged me to paint it, but when I moved in the walls were already dirty with spills and stains. I have pictures to prove it when I moved in. Also, when I asked for a copy of what I am being charged for, the information was not accurate. It says they did all the cleaning and painting in the middle of the month, but I didn't move out until the last day of that month. Do I have an argument worth pursuing?
  • I have joint custody with my ex, but i have to move due to financial probs. I will not be able to have the kids because their school will be too far away. Do I need to file something with the court. I fear my ex will say I abandoned the kids.
