QUESTIONS

  • I'm getting a insurance settlement and get food stamps. must I disclose this?
  • My apartment lease will be expiring in a few months and the new lease that has been proposed includes a new payment for a percentage of the common area utilities. The calculation is based on the total utility bill for the common areas then breaks down by square footage and number of occupants of each apartment. The monthly charges will fluctuate from month to moth as the common area charges change. My questions are is this legal? Aren't we already paying for the common area utilities by paying rent? Would this not be consider a double dip? Please advise. Thank you, Kathleen Ingram
  • on medical leave from work due to injury. doctor has not released me back to work. can my employer fire me?
  • MY X OR HUBBY DONT KNOW WHICH CAUSE HE WONT TELL ME IF HE DIVORCED ME 16 YRS AGO AND I DONT KNOW WHERE HE WAS LIVING TO FIND OUT. HE FIRST SAID WE WERE DIVORCED THEN HE SAID WE ARE NOT.

  • I am a legal resident since 1991. I left the US for 1 year to study in Australia. Have I lost my 5 continous years in the us to apply for citizenship?
  • What is the definition of habitable under AZ law. If move into apt. that has new carpet that makes one sick would that be uninhabitable? Thanks
  • I have paid my rent for the month and told roommate that I am moving out on the 4th. On the 10th she changed the locks. Can she legally lock me out for the rest of the month?
  • merry for 6 years, my wife is with some other person (cheating) she does not know i know yet, i have 2 kids 6 & 2, how can i start the divorce process, i want costudy of kids. im the only one that works for the last 6 years i need help.
  • I have a defiant 17 year old daughter who is violent and verbally abusive. She has even damaged our home by punching holes in the doors and is using drugs. She will not follow any of our rules and basically comes and goes as she pleases. She turns 18 in 5 months, but will not graduate high school until May of next year. Are we still responsible for her until she graduates, or do our responsibilities end once she turns 18? She is causing turmoil and fear within our home and we just don't know what our rights are.
