QUESTIONS

  • Is the law the same re foreclosure the same for a mobile home? I have vacated the property. Can my wages be garnished?
  • I am a full time college student in Arkansas. My girlfriend and 4 year old son moved back to Phoenix to live with her dad and his family. I receive VA benefits to attend college and with rent and other items. I have also started working part time, at night, as the money I receive doesn't cover everything. I live very modestly as I don't have much time to do things. I received court papers suing for child support. She and I had already discussed our financial situation. She works full time with the Laveen school system. I try to assist with money but it's very hard. What can I do?
  • My mother, 66, is having problems with the HOA of her condo. Before cancer, I could have figured out what they're saying and what she agreed to -- not now. Is there someone available to ask?
  • My sons mother and I lived together since he was born 4 years ago, we are no-longer together and I am considering filing for support on myself for joint custody and parenting time.
