QUESTIONS

  • How can I get paid for work I did
  • Recently, my husband and i agreed to take in my niece and my great-niece. No my niece is being threatened by the baby's fathers mother for visitation rights. she claims my niece is holding the baby who is eight months old, hostage from her. This woman has never made a single attempt to come visit the child where she now lives. she refuses to accept my nieces offers of visits as long as my niece is there. She wants the baby and I'm afraid she will stop at nothing to take her away from my niece who hasn't done anything wrong.
  • If a married couple has guardianship of children for the past 5 years, and the couple now wish to divorce. Would the they risk losing the children?
  • My daughter's teacher has given some specific issues regarding neglect of our child. Her mother is responsible for her schooling, but on her custody days the teacher has noticed some "red flags" in the last month, as well as some increased absences. If the cases are specific enough, and I can back them up with written statements from her teacher, would this warrant a temporary order without notice?
  • My daughters father who has being in prison for 17 years is thrusting me with having custody of my child 7 days a week every other week. He is not on the birth certificate and has not been part of her life, she is now 5 months old, he asked me to abort when I told him I was pregnant. Will the court grant him custody. He was in prison for holding a family hostage.
  • My husband passed away and had a credit card that was in his name only. Am I held accountable to pay that debt off? And I am confused, do creditors have six months to file a claim, after they receive the death certificate, or 6 months after you probate? Thank You!
  • When I got my divorce I did not indicate that I would be taking back my maiden name. Shortly after, I just started using it. Thirty-two years later I am experiencing a problem with Social Security. I will be 62 next year and need to legally change my name so I will be able to collect my monthly Social Security. I was divorced in California but now reside in Arizona. My question is, will I need a Certified or Exemplified copy of my Divorce Decree? Or no copy at all?
  • I have 2 children that were born out of wedlock but paternity was established and I am their biological father. The mother of my children placed an order of protection on me but she recently dropped it. Prior to the order of protection we had a mutual custody agreement but it wasn't court ordered. Now that the order o protection is dropped she doesn't want to go back to our original agreement. She won't let me take my children without supervision or let them sleep over. With all this being said does she have the legal right to do this? What are my legal rights for visitation with my kids?
  • Can a misdemeanor for domestic violence be expunged?
  • If your home goes to foreclosure, how may years do you have to wait before you can buy a home again?
