QUESTIONS

  • I have joint legal decision making with my child's father. he recently request a list of everyone who lives in our household do I need to give him that information?
  • Where can I see someones will?
  • The ac went out in our house rental at 1:30am, so I had to get myself and two small children to a hotel. We ended up staying for two nights before the AC was repaired. The landlords said they won't/don't reimburse for the hotel. I'm confused because it says in the Tenant/Landlord act that money can be withheld from rent if substitute house has to be found if the rental is uninhabitable. I have receipts for the hotel and I took the amount off the rent & now the landlords are looking to either late fee or evict me. Can they do that?! I really scared as I have two small kids & no where to go.
  • What is the definition of habitable under AZ law. If move into apt. that has new carpet that makes one sick would that be uninhabitable? Thanks
  • If I think that you have a "disability," what "reasonable accommodation" does your company have to make?

  • 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?
  • My ex and I have a parenting plan now. But, he continues to keep my son from me. Wont allow phone calls etc. I have tried to file a enforcement petition and the judge wont even listen to me. Now hes filed for a petition to modify parenting time. He has a bad DV record. Hes currently on probation for it. I need some legal help. Please I tried legal aid and they cant help me because conflict of interest. My ex dont want custody. he wants to control me and hurt me. His mom works for a family law office. I dont no where else to turn at this point.
  • If you are not getting cash assistance from DES but you are getting medical and food stamps; how can i go about filing child support? What papers do I need to fill out?
  • I was informed of trustee sale to take place 06/2008 on my home in Florence, AZ. My Husband and I decided it was best to vacate the home with our family before the sale. We filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in 2011 and included the home and HOA. We received a letter from an attorney, suing us for HOA dues, post bankruptcy. Wouldn't it already be considered foreclosed from the notified date of sale, even if it was postponed?
