QUESTIONS

  • where is the food stamp office located?
  • I understand that the age of adulthood is 18 in Arizona. While it may seem like a silly question, I wanted to make absolutely sure that this applies to my high school's ability to require parental consent or signatures, or notify my parents without my permission. They seem to be under the impression it does not. If this does apply to the school, I assume a simple state issued I.D. would suffice to prove my age?
  • If I have full custody does that mean I will be the one to name my child when they are born ?
  • My sole income is Social Security. I just received a civil summons from my old credit union for my credit card debit. Can they garnish my Social Security income? My Social Security is direct deposited into my bank account. I CAN NOT afford an attorney, just wanted to know my rights.
  • I am currently renting a room in a person's house. Due to a leak in the plumbing they are replacing all of the flooring on the floor that I live in, including in the room that I rent. I have to vacate my room for 2-3 days while they refloor the room. She says that she only has to reimburse me the "daily cost" of my room rental for the days I have to be out of my room. Do they have to provide adequate housing for me while I am being forced out of my room. She says I can sleep on an air mattress. Would my renters insurance cover this?
  • my husband left me and my children, he is the father of our 6 yo daughter. He has been gone almost 2 months, and has not helped out financially at all. My question is, in the event of my death or incapacities, how do I grant my parents legal custody of my daughter. I am wondering if I can type a letter and have it notarized since we have not started divorce proceedings at this point in time. I just want to make sure my parents get my children in case of tragedy.
  • I just started my job 3 months ago and dont have any sick time hours i just became a fulltimer they offered me 12 weeks uunpaid is there anyway i can get paid within those weeks
  • A newly licensed dentist removed all of my teeth except the front six. When he removed my bottom teeth, he did a lot of damage - splintered some of the bone, and tore out a lot of tissue. He did not even use my x-rays; instead, he hung up a dental-chart illustration and used that. He used a pliers-like instrument to violently wrench my teeth from my head, all the while sweating and swearing. He failed to anesthetize my lower front teeth and reprimanded me for flinching when he removed them in the absence of novocaine. I am still receiving bills from them. How do I file a small claim?
  • We began renting a place in Feb. It was advertised as having both a swamp cooler and A/C, which is one of the reasons we chose this particular place. When they came to set-up the swamp cooler it was discovered it needs to be replaced. But now they are telling us that they will not replace it because we have A/C. Are they required to fix it?
  • What is a disability under the ADA?
