QUESTIONS

  • I have been told that my living situation with the kids is illegal. Currently we live in a small townhome and two boys and a girl live in the same room. The boys are 13 and 10 and the girl is 14. Are there laws against this?
  • My ex and I were never married. We have a two-year old son. He has court ordered visits twice a week. He is currently homeless. he cannot be trusted with the child and the child has come home from visits unfed and with a dirty diaper and dirty clothes. When we take him to visit, they're usually at his mother's house- but she moved out of state. Now he refuses to tell me where the visits will be. I'm wondering, with him being homeless, can I break the court ordered visits? We have court again the second week of September.
  • How can I put my fathers name on my birth certificate if he can not come to the US?
  • I hired into a company through a temp agency, this company hires only the white people into their company and puts all of the blacks in a separate room, and they also take jobs from black to give to whites and omit the deficult parts to make easy for them, but would not do this for the blacks, what is my recourse.
  • Our divorce was granted 09/26/06. As part of the agreement, I was supposed to pay my husband $35,000 to buy him out of a rental house we co-own with my parents. He refuses to take the money and I am at a loss as to what to do. He now says he wants the house, but has done nothing to procure financing to buy out me and my parents. Do I go to court and petition them to enforce the court order or do I sue him for non-compliance? The property agreement was "not-merged" and I have been advised to sue. How do I do that?
  • I've rented a home that has 3 bedrooms, when inspecting the house the a.c. was not on so I was not aware that one of the bedrooms has little airflow. A.c. guy said ductwork need to be done. This a 6month old child's room. Landlord said it's too expensive to do the duct work. What are my rights about this? Can I be refunded my last 2 months rent because the do not want to do the duct work?
  • My daughter is 2 and I am still in high school. Can I collect support from her dad? we never married and aren't together.He claims her on his taxes but doesn't share anything with me. Because I am in school, it works out that she probably spends 60% with me and 40% with him.
  • The home I'm renting is about to be auctioned....will I have to leave immediately or do I have 30 or 90 days?
  • yes i need to know how much it will cost me to get a new birth certificate when i moved i lost my birth certificate so i need a new one my fathers name is walter o clark my mothers name is lois a clark and mine is anakin j ginger i have change my name legally and now i need the cost of it
  • My ex husband's new wife has made a threat-" that if I ever go to Sierra Vista, she will have her first husbands , friends fron the pen, have me "taken care of"". Her first husband was a drug dealer who was murdered, so this is not something I take lightly. And my daughter hasnt seen her dad for over 2 years, because this woman was verbally abusive to her. She is also a convicted felon. Is this a felony crime? And can I be protected from her, or her thug lifestyle friends? I live in Tucson.
