QUESTIONS

  • I was fired for my FMLA being denied. However my fmla should not have been denied, the 3rd party company my copany used to verify the information contacted the wrong hospital that my wife stayed at even tho I supplied them the name and the names of the 2 doctors that treated my wife. Since FMLA was denied that put me in violation of the attendance policy so I was fired. Do I have any recourse to file a claim,
  • i volunteering file for child support. but my ex is not letting me see my son. Which papers do i need to file to get visitation rights since i already filing for child support so i can pay her.
  • I'm the landlord and I want the people to move I had them evicted 8 months ago and then I felt sorry for them when they asked if they could sleep in their car in driveway with their 2 small children and their dog . I tried to evict them again last month for nonpayment of the utilities and failure to dispose of their huge pile of household trash , unfortunately I gave them a 24 hr notice to clean it up so I did not win the eviction , the verbal agreement was that they were to pay utilities water trash electric . I want them out What forms can I use to remedy this situation ?
  • My husband and I have been married 45 years. 4 years ago my step-daughter took him to live with her in Las Cruces, NM. She has isolated him from me, I haven't spoken to him for 3 1/2 years. Recently, she has been taking the $1200 per month that goes directly into an account set up for me. My husband's name is on it but I have received this money for 5 years because this was our arrangement. I think he is not capable of making his own decisions and she is exploiting him. She or someone cleared out his CDs of $50,000. Is there any legal action I can take to cover myself?
  • I was convicted of DV Agg. Assault w/ a Deadly Weapon in 2001. I served 3.5 yrs. for this crime. I was under the influence of drugs/alcohol at the time, and also going thru a bitter divorce suit. I am wondering if there is any way I can get my gun rights restored? I am not planning on going hunting, or shooting someone, but with the crime rate escalating due to the economy staggering, I would NOT want to be sentenced to prison for protecting my own life as a prohibited possessor. What, if any, steps do I need to take to attempt to restore my rights. Thank You for you time !!!
  • I am a Registered Nurse and have worked continuously as a RN in the Phoenix area for 37 years. This year a requirement for proof of citizenship is required. I have my Certified birth Certificate but it is not acceptable by the State Board of Nursing because my first and middle names are reversed from what the Arizona State Board of Nursing have on file. The only documentation I received to verify the change was my social security card. I am a Medicare Benificiary and I receive Social Security Benefits. I have been researching the accepted lists for proof of citizenship and find that Arizona states if you have been accepted into the Medicare program no other proof of citizenship is required. I have been a Medicare Benificiary since I was 65, a total of 6 years. However, the Arizona State Board of Nursing lists do not include enrollment in Medicare as proof of Citizenship. What can I do to prove I am a United States Citizen?
  • When my daughter who is not 4 was born. Her father was not present. We are now married. I never filed for a BC while at the hospital cause I was still deciding a name. Well I have her name now. She has my last name. But I never filed for her BC. My mistake. But being as I never filed for it. It was just my name on the hospital paper work. Me and her father are together and we got married. I went to file for her BC with his name on there of coarse and the sent the paper work back to me saying the information is not correct or the same as the certificate. How so? When I do not have her BC yet?
  • At what age can a child stop going to there dads for visitation
  • My husband had what was deemed by a Dr. at Mayo as necessary surgery in 2008. All insurance info was provided and they knew he was Medicare. No one said a word about the possibility of no coverage. Now, 3 yrs. later, medicare has said they won't pay the claim and Mayo has said we owe $10,000 which would be impossible to pay since we are on SS and pension. Had we been told that at the outset, we would not have proceeded with the surgery. Wasn't it Mayo's responsibilty at the time to check out if they would get paid? How do we get this debt dismissed?
  • why can`t a 73yr. old mother/caretaker of a 41yr. old adult, receive extra income besides her & his soc, sec.?
