QUESTIONS

  • Is there any law regarding the age of a person subpeona for a trial?
  • I rented a house. Put down deposit and first month rent. Owner was still workig on house when I moved in and used my utilities to do roof and stucco house. Never got gas turned on because he did not get a permit and was fined. Only had electric in one bedroom. Had no cooling and no hot water. Then I got a 10 notice to get out and I had only been in house for 15 days. I requested my deposit back and some of the eletric paid on a 200 dollar bill. I signed with a leasing company and now they say I have to contact the owner but wont give my any contact information. What can I do?
  • Can unemployment that he will be getting be garnished for child support?
  • I remarried my first wife after being divorced for 6 years. We are divorcing once again, is the old divorce still in tact? Since the old divorce was not motified or a notification of change "being remarried", are the orders in the first divorce or any child support arrears still affective?
  • My husband who is 34 gave a sperm sample, via a specimen cup, over 10 years ago to a lesbian couple he was friends with. They all signed a mutual agreement that he had no legal rights or responsibilities to any child created from this donation. The lesbian couple moved away and my husband has not heard from them in 10 years. No the mother who carried the child is coming after my husband and I for Paternity and Childsupport. My husbands first wife did not keep their copy of the signed agreement and the other female in the partnership passed away a month ago. What on earth do we do now?
  • I no longer live in AZ but a legal office where I live said AZ still has jurisdiction on the case. I share joint legal custody with my sons father. We do not reside in the same state but he says I need a lawyer to move. There is approximately 6-7 hours driving time between our current residences and when I move it will be that long of a flight time. Can he prevent me from moving? I gave him verbal notice and followed up with an email of when we plan to leave so he is fully aware of the relocation.
