QUESTIONS

  • I am trying to do a formal name change for my son. His biological father's rights were terminated july 2012. Do I still have to notify him of the name change?
  • My wife and I recently rented an apartment and let our 17 year old daughter live there. Our intention to have her as the inhabitant was expressed to the property manager and her name was included onthe rental agreement. Are we within our rights to let our 17 year old daughter inhabit the apartment that we, her parents, rented?
  • I understand that the age of adulthood is 18 in Arizona. While it may seem like a silly question, I wanted to make absolutely sure that this applies to my high school's ability to require parental consent or signatures, or notify my parents without my permission. They seem to be under the impression it does not. If this does apply to the school, I assume a simple state issued I.D. would suffice to prove my age?
  • My son is 5 years old. I have sole custody. I read the self service paperwork and it says I have to notify the other parent or show "order terminating parental rights of the other parent." Is my divorce decree showing sole custody good enough? I know sole custody gives me the right to make decisions for my children even if my ex does not agree.
  • I want to kno the biological father to my daughter but he refuses to take dna how can i get this resolved?
  • MY LANDLORD OFFERED ME ANOTHER UNIT BECAUSE HE SAID IT HAD MORE SPACE ME NOT KNOWING I SIGNED A LEASE FOR ANOTHER 8 MONTHS AND I WANT TO MOVE IN APRIL PRIOR TO THAT LEASE I SIGNED ON IN APRIL WHEN I FIRST MOVED IN FOR THE SMALLER UNIT IT HASN'T EVEN BEEN A YEAR DO I HAVE TO LIVE OUT THE LEASE AGREEMENT FOR THE UNIT HE OFFERED TO ME FOR ANOTHER 6 MONTHS
  • My husband is 80 and showing signs of dementia. He will want to live out his years in Arizona as a resident. He has about $770.000 in resources. I do not plan to be a resident as I have family elsewhere and allergies here, unfortunately. Also, I am 68 and have about $200.000 in resources. Will my resources be tapped if my husband outlives what he has set aside, even if I am not a resident?
  • I have received a notice through a realtor that my mortgage co. is offering me a Relocation Assistance Agreement. I am in foreclosure and they are offering me 2,000 if I sign the agreement and move out within a month. They say that all needed repairs to the home will be deducted from the $2,000. This is an old home built in 1954 and is in need of some repairs. They will proceed with eviction if I do not sign the agreement. How long do Eviction Proceedings take? How long before I will be forced out of my home?
  • What are my rights if I am kicked out by family member?
  • I have a 2 year old son and his father has not contacted me to see him in 5 months. Currently he is incarcerated and has not paid any money for the purge amount for the passed 2 months. Am I able to file for child abandonment after 6 months if the father continues this behavior? If so, how do I go about filing for this?
