QUESTIONS

  • My landlord has sold the house I am renting. I have 10 months left on the lease. The new home-owner is not buying the house as "occupied". I have agreed to move out. Do the old homeowners owe me any sort of compensation because they broke the lease (comparable to what I would owe if I were the one breaking the lease)? I had about 1 weeks notice. Thanks!
  • I have a 10 year old daughter that I have sole custody of- I never married her biological dad. I have since married and wanted to know if that would then make him a legal guardian of my daughter?
  • I got divorced about a year ago now and my ex got me for child support since she was paying the insurance for the kids. We have 4 kids together but only 1 of them qualified for support. Now a year later I have tried to contact my kids and see them and help as much as I can as well as I even put all 4 of my kids under my insurance. Now I am expecting a new baby within the month and none of my kids want to talk or see me. I still pay their insurance and try to talk with them. I need information on Child Support.
  • if someone uses a debit card without the owners knowledge or consent what can they be charged with and what are the repacutions
  • I have been living in the residence of my 8 year old daughters father's home for the past 2.5 years. During our child custody proceeding I voluntarily decided to pay 700 for child support. When I moved back into the residence we verbally came to an agreement that instead of having the child support reduced, that would be my portion of the rent. I have decided to file motion for joint custody of my child and the father is threatening to evict me. Since there was no lease agreement drawn up an only a verbal agreement in regards to the child support paid as rent can I be evicted? Can I appeal?
  • can SS funds be garnished
  • Does a caregiver have to sign a rental agreement with my landlord? If not, what proof do I need.
  • My permanent resident card was stolen while on vacation. I am considering filing for citizenship, must I first replace the green card prior to or in conjunction with filing for citizenship? Thank you so much.
  • How many sq feet per tenant?
  • My children's mother dropped the kids off with me December 31, three days after my agreed weekly visit not wanting to be responsible for taking care of them anymore. Ive got documentation and witnesses that she dropped them off with the intent to sign over her rights as a mother so she could do as she pleases. How do I protect myself legally so she cannot come and go taking them from a stable home after not being in contact once for the past five weeks? She dropped them off at my job with only the clothes on their backs. I am employed and have constant care for them, how do I protect myself?
