QUESTIONS

  • I have a superior court mailing that states your civil right have been restored. Does this mean I can vote,purchase weapon etc.?
  • Hoping I picked the right category. In January of this year (2017) I received a 1099-C from the bank cancelation of debt from a Home Equity Line. Does the bank need to release the lien or deed that was recorded when the HEL was established? How do I know they truely forgave the debt or if there is still some backdoor for them to collect should I sell or refi the home? I only received the 1099-C nothing else. And at the Maricopa recorders office no release was recorded. What do I need to do to have them release it. Is there a time frame that the bank is required to file a release?
  • My father has turned my girlfriend in to DHR on suspicision of child abuse of my son. I am a single parent with full custody of my son. My girlfriend lives out of state. My father has threatened to file for temporary custody unless I allow my son to stay with him until the case is closed. I do not have the funds to fight my father in court and felt I had no other choice. My son has been with my father for three nights now. I want to take him back home with me but does my father have the ability to take temporary custody and if so do I need a lawyer to deny him this?
  • Is it against the law for my creditor (car dealership)to contstanly contact me at work even after I have verbally requested them not to? What can I do to protect my employment as them constanly calling may jeopordize my employment?
  • I returned part of my tenants deposit because their dog wet on the carpet. We took pics and the carpet person said it was pet urine. My question is how long do I have to give the tenant to cash the check before I can stop payment? It has been over a month since they received it.
  • We moved in on may 24 on may 25 we tried contacting front office of refrigerator not working daughter in law went in to main office on a Monday they told her following Wednesday maintenance would be in 2 weeks later maintenance shows up says it needs freon another week passes still fridge not fixed all food now spoiled contract does say tenant responsible for kiss but doesn't say tenant responsible for loss if complex neglegent do I get reimbursed for food lost
  • CAN I SERVE AN EVICTION NOTICE IN A LOCAL NEWSPAPER. I CANNOT LOCATE THE TENANT THESE PAST MONTHS. TENANT HASN'T PAID RENT FOR SEVERAL MONTHS NOW.
  • I recently had a class 6 undesignated felony reduced to a misdemeanor. It still shows up as a felony on a background check, who do i submit copies of the order reducing it to a misdemeanor in order to get it off my background?
  • Who is responsible to repair leaking pipes inside the ceiling between two condo units? HOA or condo owner? My understanding of condo ownership is that each owner owns the air space inside the unit. Anything beyond is undivided interest owned by all the owners and the HOA.
  • In the event an annulment was granted does the the wife have the option to keep the husbands last name even if he requested she not keep it?
