QUESTIONS

  • My daughter refuses to go to her moms, what happens if she doesnt go? She is being emotionally abused by her mom. Also, can i file for emergency custody if i can prove it?
  • I have(had) a roommate who Moved out when she lost her job. She hasn't paid rent for 2 months but she left all her belongings here. We've been in contact since she left mid august about picking up her thinggs and she keeps giving me the run around. Just wondering how long do I have to wait to get rid of her belongings?
  • I was let go from the company I work for. I had employee housing that I took a paycut for to supplement me staying in the house. I was not given an eviction notice but was told that I needed to be out by 6 pm the same day. It was 1 pm when I was informed. My final check has been withheld until I move out. And my landlord/employer has told me the locks will be changed the next day. Is this even legal??
  • Recently my ex has passed and we have a 13 year old that we shared custody of. I am not sure if I need to file with the courts or do I just take over full custody. I am her biological father and there is no one contesting me taking her.
  • I have recently separated from my daughter's mother. We were never married and she is now planning to move to Phoenix without my consent. How do I go about filing for custody, setting visitation and prevent her from moving my daughter out of Tucson.
  • I moved out of a rental home on 10/16/15 but was made to pay for the entire month of October. Did the 14 days for returning my deposit start on 10/16 or 10/31? Also, 14 days since both days has passed and I'd like to file a claim in Small Claims Court but I moved out of state. Are there options for out of state former tenants or must I travel back to Arizona? Thank you.
  • My landlord did not require a deposit and is now sending a bill for cleaning of the apartment. I am under the impression that cleaning is something the landlord must do and therefore a cost of doing business.
  • We currently have 6 month temporary custody of our grandson. We obtained this in court in mid-January, Our grandson has lived with us since birth but his mom and dad lived with us as follows: his dad until june of 2014 and his mom until Aug. 2014. This is while they fight this out in court. We want our daughter to get custody. How do we go about getting visitation since we have already been being his sole caregiver and support for over 6 months now. We just want documented visitation in court documents. How do we do this?
  • 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?
  • I have perm. legal guardianship of a child and the mother is wanting visitation. Due to a recent event I feel it is no longer safe to allow unsupervised visitation. Is there a way to get her supervised visitation? Is there community programs to help with this or does this have to be filed through the courts?
