QUESTIONS

  • Recently, I have been put under a the protection of a restraining order with out my consent. It lasts one year and I do not wish to remain under it for that long. I'm going to turn 18 in a few months. Is it possible to take the protection of the restraining order off of me when I turn 18?
  • We added a middle name to our son's name after we turned in the hospital paperwork. I sent off for his official birth certificate and noticed that it does not have the added second middle name. He is two now, what do I need to ensure that both of his middle names are part of his legal name and on his birth certificate?
  • I'm engaged to a man who is lock up because of his baby momma but she don't let him have any rights and he says he remembers signing the birth certificate so that gives him rights but she told him he wasn't the father so he is wanting a DNA test done as soon as possible because he had child support payments pending

  • Public Housing is asking for a letter stating that I have file child support to the father of my son. My question is that where can I get that letter.Do I have to go to court for this?
  • I live in Phoenix & filed our divorce in AZ. My husband is going on medical disability & lives in CA. He is turning his pension into the disability. We have been married 19 years and the judge that I saw at my first hearing wants me to check the pension amount so I receive my correct amount. I have a request for $850.00 in spousal support but I would like to lower it to $450.00 because he is going on disability. I completed the decree with a paralegal. Can I change the decree myself to lower the amount of spousal support before my next default hearing?
  • I have had someone living with me for the past 3 years as somewhat of a caregiver. I have lupus and Fybromyalgia and there are days when I can not function. I never know when something will happen. I live in an apartment andhave for 6 years. All the other managers knew that someone was with me and why and it was okay. Now we have a new management company who said that he has to fill out a credit report and since he is not working, they said that he has to let them know who is buying the soap, toilet tissue, toothpaste, etc. Since he does not have a job, he does get food stamps. Now, my question is..is it legal for them to ask him who pays for what. I don't think they can ask him that because that has nothing to do with adding him to the lease.
  • If your name has legally been removed from the childs birth do you still have to pay child support
