  • If there is a person named as the executor in a trust and the Trustee wants to change the executor; is the previous executor need to be present in order to make this revision to the trust? The previous executor is not reliable and cannot be trusted. Also this person would not agree to let the trust be changed.
  • Am i obligated to give a 60 day notice or a 30 day notice prior to moving out
  • My mother passed away about 3 years ago. When she did, my father gave my brother a verbal guardianship. They never had the papers filled out or anything, and now I have to fill out things like FAFSA and my college that I plan to attend requires proof of legal guardianship. My dad lives in a different state. Is there a way around this?
  • We just bought a home in Arizona. I am a 100% disabled veteran living in a hot box for the past 5 weeks.We had an inspection done before and everything was fine. We have been in the house for 5 weeks and have had a different air conditioning repair person here more than 5 times with a different reason each time. Now we have flooring from the kitchen, entry way, and laundry room that needs to be replaced because of water damage from the air conditioner. Do we have any recourse against the home inspector? I called her and she said she would refund the inspection fee, but it wasn't her responsibility for the repairs now. Every penny we have went to purchase this house and we bought a home warranty so we wouldn't have to worry about problems. The warranty company of course claiming pre-existing conditions for things, so we have to fight to get some of the costs covered with them. Is there any help for us?
  • I have a court hearing over a domestic batteryou case and I was just served papers telling me to appear 1 hour before hearing to give my fingerprints and photo should I be concerned?
  • We are owners of a double wide in a moblie home park in Tucson.  We live out of state and for the last 5 months have received only partial payments and at this time a tenant is 4 months past due in agreed payments. We have had several issues with this problem, and feel we can no longer allow this person to occupy our property and would like to have someone tell us how we can go about serving notice for an eviction. We have read the laws of Arizona and know that a paper has to be obtained, filed, and paid for by us and then sent on to the occupant of property.  How can we start this procedure?

  • 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.
