QUESTIONS

  • My son is almost 9 years old and has never seen or met his biological father. He does not even know about him. My fiance has been his dad since he was 2. The bio dad has never attempted to see him or take responcibility and now that he is out of prison he all of a sudden wants to stake claim. Can he do this?
  • My boyfriend was married to someone and had a baby with her. She has said before that he is not the father, but still came after him for child support. How do we go about getting a DNA test to see if he is actually the father?
  • before my child's birth can I temporarily give custody to my grandmother of my new born child
  • My ex wife moved to another state with our children, she does not work, and I ssupport their household financially, however it is all considered child support as it is writen in the decree. I ensured the decree stated I could claim the children on my taxes so long as I am up-to-date with my payments. Due to the condition, there is a form she is required to sign. I am up-to-date but she refuses to sign. What are my options to enforce the decree?
  • i have a son and a daughter and i would like my fiance to be their permanent guardian, when we get married does he automatically become their guardian?
  • After divorcing in 1999 I raised my 3 children for years while my ex scated on the majority of the support she was supposed to pay. I let it go. After she failed to return two from a visitation I agreed to allow them to stay with her. She jacked up my payment by 4x as much based on a former income. She now takes 50% of my income including Soc Sec and is starving me out. A civil matter at this time. Possilby criminal fraud. She is a legal secretary and knew what she was doing. 87 filings. I can't afford the copying fees.
  • Over the past few months my apartment has been having serious plumbing issues. I have sewage coming up into my tub and when it is really backed up I cannot even flush the toilet. I am also unable to use my washer or shower due to the backup. My landlord who rents two apartments is taking his time handling the problem and refuses to use professionals to make the repairs and refuses to rent us a hotel. I read that the next step is to call the health department. Would that only make the problem worse. Is my landlord able to evict me in retaliation. My lease is good up to January.
  • 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?
  • where I do I take domestic violence classes in Prescott Arizona ???and how much do they cost
  • I live in Northern NV and had a felony DUI in Pinal AZ in 2008. I can't seem to find the link to Pinal county superior court to request the expunge application. What do I do? Where do I call?
