QUESTIONS

  • Our lease is not up for 3 months. We bought a house and know we are responsible for rent till end of lease. My property manager has been aware for a month and a half that we were moving out and also I gave her permission to try to rent it and she has not put it back on rental market. I know rhey are supposed to try to re rent it just wanted to know if there was any guidelines on how long they have to try to get it rented again?
  • Can a convicted felon be appointed a power of attorney over someone?
  • I leased house and signed an agreement before doing a walkthrough. I told him I could begin moving the next day, but decided to wait until repairs and cleaning are done. The property manager said it would take a week to do repairs. He will not change the move in date, which will cost me $300 for a week I am not there. Can I withhold a week’s rent next month for the delay or am I bound by the lease date?
  • "When parents are unmarried and no order has been entered to establish parental rights, the biological father has no legal right to either custody or parenting time until paternity is established." I read this in a question on the website and I was wondering if the child has the fathers last name, does it still mean they have no legal rights until official paternity has been established?
  • A TPO was filed on me. The petitioner tried to contact me many times after filing. Sending me texts like "Please cum sleep with me". The judge still extended the order for 12 months. I posted a web site giving an editorial of my experience. The petitioner got a warrant & I was charged with Aggravated Stalking in a different county than the TPO was filed. Can a web site be considered contact?
  • My mother Passed away on June 28, 2013. Since then my dad has remarried and kicked my little brother out of his home he is currectly living with my older brother, my sister in law and I. We recently tried to get him registered for school but could not and had to wait on my father who is always late with things that are not pertaining to him. He also gets my brother social security he give it to him. I do not think its fair that my lil brother should have to go over my dad's house with his new wife and get his own money or any other document. Please let me know how to obtain guardianship.
  • I live in Nevada, but my father lives in Arizona. His wife claims that she has a restraining order against my wife and I, prohibiting us from contacting my father. I have never been served or even contacted by any law enforcement entity in Nevada or Arizona. Is there any definitive way to to determine if there is an order in place?
  • If I am convicted with a DUI, someone told me I could get my records sealed after 2 years if I hire an attorney. If someone does a background check how long will this conviction remain on my record and if I am able to get it sealed could comone still find this conviction? Thanks for your help
  • My apartment is flooded from a leak in the roof. They had someone here earlier to try and locate the problem, but now the floor is saturated(carpet and the paint is bulging on the ceiling and the wall from water underneath. Can I move into other housing until it's repaired? They didn't even bring a fan over, and its getting wetter and wetter, I'm afraid that mold will start growing because It is very hot here, perfect for growing mold in wet plaster.
  • What if I want to file a small claim against my previous landlord in Tucson but I no longer live in Arizona? Does this have to be done in person?
