QUESTIONS

  • i have a 5 month old. the father has isnt on the birth certificate, hasnt filed for rights or establishment of paternity through the courts or anything. he rarely sees the child and when he does its only when its convenient for him. and 98% of the time, he doesnt even claim the child as his own. for example: he tells me to have the real father pay for things. i do not know his current address and was curious about something. i am currently in a relationship with someone new. if i were to marry this person, could he legally adopt the my child? what would he have to do to legally adopt my child?
  • What is the Arizona statute of limitations for a car loan on a repossessed car? 4 years or 6 years? When does it start running? After the first missed payment, or after the car gets auctioned off? Some people say the S.O.L. is 4 years because it is a car loan, and falls under this law: "47-2725. Statute of limitations in contracts for sale A. An action for breach of any contract for sale must be commenced within four years after the cause of action has accrued." Others say it is a written contract and therefore is subject to the standard 6 year S.O.L. Which one is correct?
  • We are senior citizens. A bank is offering us a home loan that we assumed was fixed interest-the rate dropped a fraction, even-then I happened to notice an unfamiliar phrase with a tiny checked box-'demand feature'. I looked it up: the bank can demand payment, calling the loan, at any time without giving a reason. It said that some states prohibit that practice. Is Arizona one? Calling the loan could destroy us and force the property into foreclosure.
  • have a class 6 undisignated felony. How long will it be on my record?
  • We are currently living in a mobile home and are being invaded by rats. Two months of the last five months we cannot use our heat or AC unit due to rat feces and them trying to nest in the vents. We have a dead rat smell in the home and my daughter is currently sleeping on the couch because of the smell. We have given a 10 day and it is past that time frame. We do not have a deposit to move. What can we do?
  • I am at the tail end of a very bitter divorce. I purchased my home prior to marriage; I am the only person listed on the title and mortgage. My ex-wife was granted temporary exclusive use and possession of the home during the divorce process. The divorce is now finalized. The decree clearly states the home is mine. There is nothing in the decree that states she has X number of days to vacate the residence, and she refuses to leave. What is the process to get her out of my house and how long can I expect it to take?
  • I have let my mother live in my residence that I owed with my Father, her ex-husband. He has since past. She is always late on the rent and does not take care of the yard, and smokes in the house. I don't have a lease agreement and I want her out of the house. I am cleaning up his estate and acquiring a loan to fix up the place. How can I legally do this to get her out of the house since I have no signed lease agreement. She is either late or short on the rent at least 3 times in the last year.
  • What can I do if the landlaord turns off the chiller system for the whole apartment complex and it's over 100 degrees outside
  • i am in a contract dispute requiring mediation and/or binding arbitration. How do I file? The total amount is $4K. Thank you
