QUESTIONS

  • I no longer live in AZ but a legal office where I live said AZ still has jurisdiction on the case. I share joint legal custody with my sons father. We do not reside in the same state but he says I need a lawyer to move. There is approximately 6-7 hours driving time between our current residences and when I move it will be that long of a flight time. Can he prevent me from moving? I gave him verbal notice and followed up with an email of when we plan to leave so he is fully aware of the relocation.
  • Do I qualify for food stamps if I own a mobile home?
  • My exhusband has just been charged with a DUI while my son was in his car. I have a domestic violence conviction against him 3 years ago. He was recently kicked off our son's baseball team as their coach for hitting another child. I have shared (50/50) parenting time and custody. I want to get full custody. I don't know if the courts will give it to me. I don't have the money to spend on full fledged attorney. What are your thoughts....
  • Small Claims Court -- What are the boundaries of cases that can be brought before this court?
  • Is expunging an arrest record available if there was no result as a conviction?
  • I am a grandmother of four children and their mother continues to take them to GA every year and bring them back every year. This year she is taking them for good, but they dont want to be there. I am looking for a way to get them back to MS, but i dont have money for a lawyer. She had the law on her side so I am asking if there is a way to get my grandchildren back home with me?
  • I've read that Az. doesn't recognize common law marriage. However, I can't find information to clarify what occurs with a partnership after a given number of years. I've been cohabitating with a lady for 7 years, and recently was told "you've been together long enough that everything you have is community property." I'm concerned about our separate investments that we each have willed to our respective children. Thanks for any information you might be able to provide.
  • I am a widow and would like to return to my maiden name; do I need to file a name change request? or can I just go back to my maiden name
  • My son wants me to help him with custody of his baby under a year old and unborn baby. He is not married to the mother. He is on the birth certificate of the first born.The reason he is asking me to help is he has a long history of being in trouble with the law and is currentl on adult probabtion. He is currently working and doing good, but knows the courts would frown on his past. Would the courts consider giving me tempory guardianship or help with the custody. The mother is threating to move out of state with the kids, so my son wants to know his rights andif he has any from preventing that
  • If I have a deferred plea/sentencing does that count as a conviction?
