QUESTIONS

  • Can my mom get a judge to make me stay at home even though I'm 18 until I graduate highschool?
  • If a child has been removed from the home by CPS and assigned a family guardian 8+ yrs ago, does the mother have to petition the court in order to restore parental rights and get the child back? Or does the guardian have to petition the court?
  • My AC is not working. I have grandchildren living with me. I have notified landlord, but he has not sent anyone to repair. How long do I have to wait for a response from landlord. If he doesn't repair soon, I will have to go to a hotel. I have already purchased 2 fans,(blowing hot air only) We cannot live in this hot house. What are my rights?
  • My sister is in prison for the next year. She shared custody of her 2 children with the father. My parents who my sister and kids are living with have been keeping and taking care of them. Now the father filed for full custody. Do my parents have any rights to apply for legal guardianship? What can we do so we can still have the kids every 3 days?
  • I am currently in a Ch 13 bankruptcy. My home was in my bk plan. Currently my pre and post petition payments are current. However my mortgage servicer continues to place the payments made in a reserve account for several days before applying the monthly payment. My loan servicer also adds additional fees to my monthly statement such as property preserv fee? My home was in foreclosure but since it is current on pre and post petition payments, my servicer still has not canceled the trustee sale, they just continue to move the date forward. I filed pro se and everything else has been fine.
  • how do I remove my proection order from someone that has a domestic assult?
  • In 1990 my claim for PTSD was denied. I did not receive the claim denial letter, because I was imprisoned. I suffered with PTSD for another 30 years. Following a diagnosis of prostate cancer I again filed a claim for agent orange exposure along with another claim for PTSD. The agent orange claim was denied, but the PTSD was rated 100% service connected. I asked that the effective date be the original claim date in 1990, but that was denied. I am seeking help in appealing this to the claims court.
  • How long can my tenant stay at property when letting home forclose?
  • I am currently going through a divorce, where there is no custody established, and am pregnant. I have been put on strict bedrest. I am trying to move to Nevada where I will have more help from my older children's father and be able to be on bedrest like I'm supposed to. Would I be able to file a petition for relocation with a minor, and temporarily move before the 60 days, without getting in trouble for it. And will it effect how they decide custody. Also, I have a PO against the other parent, and there has been domestic violence toward me and the children during our marriage.
