QUESTIONS

  • how do I apply for assistance with bankruptcy?
  • My apt complex rented me a place that has black mold growing inside the walls and they are giving me a hard time about doing anything my neighbor has pictures showing the black mold from last March and they wont see them or do anything about it. What can I do. Can I break my lease do to unhealthy living conditions. can I sue them
  • My boyfriend owes almost $100,000 to the State of California. He is paying off the welfare that his ex wife was on. His paychecks are garnished and as of a few days ago his bank account was too. I was planning on joining the Navy in the spring and we wanted to get married. My question is: Will his child support debt transfer to me?Will they be able to garnish my wages and bank account? Will any of this be put on my credit score?
  • Was an orderof protectionserved properly thepolice cameto mydoormyfatheransrwedthedoormy dadcalledme tothe doorthedoorwasopen Irefusedpapers policeofficrs threw them into my dadshome Inever touched thepapers isitvalid?
  • When is it NOT LEGAL to terminate an employee; i.e., what are the grounds for termination of employment that the law prohibits?
  • I am breaking my lease with 7 months left on it. I told my landlord a week ago and they have yet to post the property on the rental market. How long do they have to do this? I know I am responsible for rent until they find a new tenant but I also know they need to make an effort to find one.
  • Myfather was murdered and I was told that since Iam family and they have made an arrest andlet him go am I allowed to see case files?
  • My ex has made it so hard to visit him. All on her terms. I live in phx and she lives in Prescott so I drive up North to see him. She won't let me take him over nights and I'm lucky if I get to see him twice a month. She recently had me served to try to sever my father rights. Next court date was suppose to be November 5. But she was involved in a crime and she is now in jail. She has violated her probation plus new five felonies. I received a letter a couple days ago saying my court date with her had been vacated. Her parents won't let me have my son. What paperwork do I need to file?
  • Signed a lease agreement a few weeks ago to an apartment sight unseen due to current resident. Today, my wife and i received keys to the new apt. Immediately found a roach infestation. In every room and every corner, black and german roaches coming out of the walls. Not one thing has been moved in yet and we were in the apt for about3 minutes. Can we legally terminate and/or nullify this lease pre move in, due to health concerns with our newborn? I have video of the roaches crawling everywhere.
  • I lost my job almost a year ago. I was denied unemploymt due to a paperwork problem and didn't appeal as I kept thinking I had a job right around the corner. I didn't. I finally got a job, right after I filed the appeal. They denied me because I hadn't been checking in every week. Is there anything I can do to get my "back-pay"? I was applying for jobs the whole time and can prove it.
