QUESTIONS

  • My son is 5 years old, his father is on the birth certificate. He has never lived with the father, he went to prison 2 weeks after he was born and has been in and out since then, What legal rights does he have?? And what would I need to do to gain soul custody? I have no contact with him.
  • I was terminated because my live-in boyfriend started a competitive business. I was informed at termination I would not be eligible for UI because "competing with employer or aiding competitor" clause. Is this true? I was not informed of this rule at the time I was hired.
  • We currently rent a home. It flooded the home in ankle deep water while we were at work. Is it reasonable to hold my landlord responsible for at least half of the water bill due to it being a maintenance issue? Also, fans were set up to dry the floors and walls, is it reasonable for the landlord to cover at least half of the electric bills?
  • I gave birth to my son in late April this year. His father was not there for his birth and has never met him. He had an outstanding warrant for his arrest and was just recently arrested. How do I get a DNA test to provide legal documentation that he is in fact the father of my child? Where do I start? Furthermore/Also, then what can I do next to try and obtain child support? Can anyone even receive child support from a person who is incarcerated? He is on social security by the way...so? Please Help!
  • We have lived in our apartment for just about 9 yrs. my landlord has completely ignored basic maintenance of this place. I have two giant holes in my ceiling (bedroom.) Termites in my son's room. No garbage disposal, which my landlord has bragged about not replacing to other tenants. He always wants to save money, so the few things he does replace are in poor condition or are jerri-rigged. Our main water valve is connected to our neighbor's. Swamp never wrks. He shows up unannounced or doesn't show up for agreed upon time. And more! What are my rights to get my deposit back and move out?
  • my brother and I are Coconino County Superior Court appointed guardian/conservator for my mother who has recently died. How do we terminate this arrangement with the court? It is also time for the annual report to the court. There is less than $60 in the estate.
  • I signed a lease that was marked that we would be provided with a washer and dryer. We move in and there is no washer and dryer available. Landlords said washer and dryer are convenience only. All they are doing is apologizing for it but not providing a washer and dryer. It’s marked on the lease! Can they do that?
  • After a landlord has accepted and approved your application and payment can they continue to investigate your past residency and then evict you shortly after tenant moces in for a bad landlord refrence
  • CAN A COWORKER MAKE DESCRININATING REMARKS,ABOUT RACES
