QUESTIONS

  • How do I take care of my daughters estate, since she did not have a will, nor life insurance and was living under the poverty level?
  • I originally moved my M.H. on the space it sits on 19 yrs. ago under a verbal agreement with previous owner. For many years since, I've asked to be entered into a lease with the new owners but wasn't given one until 2 weeks ago. This lease does not fall under the M.H.P, L.lord tenant act nor was it signed in front & with knowledge. What are my rights to a possible eviction now?
  • if it is stated in the will that a minor must graduate or turn 21 to receive is inheritance will other heirs received thoes
  • I am a single mom of 4 children (20, 19, 13, & 10). I divorced the children's father almost 8 yrs ago. I have full sole custody, and he was granted supervised visitation 2 hrs a week. Soon after the divorce, he stopped seeing or contacting the children. He currently has 5 felony warrants in the state of AZ for drugs and such and owes large fines. He fled the state about 6 yrs ago. And has not been seen or heard from since then. I want to know what I can do in lieu of custody of my children in the event of my death. Obviously the older children are safe; however, my 2 younger children I am concerned about. They do not know him or even know what he looks like. A long time fear of mine is that he could come and take them from family and friends here. Am I able to leave them to a more capable and safe guardian? And if so, what can I do without racking up large attorney fees? Thanks so much.
  • I care for my friends daughter, it was just when she is working. now I have her 5 of 7 days of the week. When she dose go home, The house is cold and horribly trashy, The child is always locked into her room because of the house. She is always dirty and puruple when I pick her up. What rights as the caregiver do I have? I do not feel her home is safe for her child. I also have her son 24/7 with the father living here with us.
  • How can I start to get childsupport for my child
  • My senior friend cannot pay her credit card debts (her son ran them up and then abandoned her). Her only income is Social Security and her home was inheirited (already paid off when it was inheirited). She cannot afford to file bankruptcy. She quit paying her debts over a year ago- sent them a letter stating that she cannot pay, fixed income etc. One of of the creditors recently sent a letter regarding arbitration. If she does not respond it means she agrees to their terms. I suggested to her that she respond by sending the original letter. Is there a better way to respond? Also, is her home safe from a judgement? I know her income is. I thought I read her home could not be taken. If true, would it require a lengthy court battle?
  • I LEFT MY HUSBAND AND HAD TO START COMPLETELY OVER SO I CASHED IN MY 401K...IS HE ENTITLED TO THAT MONEY IF WE WERE ONLY MARRIED A YEAR AND I ACCRUED IT BEFORE WE WERE MARRIED?
  • I would like to add my last name to my daughters birth certificate. They currently have fathers last name. I have sole custody of them and their father & I were never married. He's always been inconsistent with his visitation rights (in and out of their lives, Reason for change). Do I need a court order & his permission to add my last name to their birth certificate?
  • Hi, Is the landlord responsible for paying for the water, for a mobile home?
