QUESTIONS

  • My mother gave me my 12 year old brother "temporarily" for an unknown amount of time and he is currently living with me, my wife and two younger children. What options do I have in terms of getting custody or guardianship of him.
  • We have Jount Custody, with I being Primary. His parenting time is every other weekend. He is moving 175 miles away soon, do I have to meet him halfway without going to court first? I do not have reliable transportation due to him being $10,0000 behind in Child support. Would I be in contempt or would he need to get a court date to first change the parenting time to include meeting half way? Currently he is to pick them up at school and drop them back off at school, as we do not get along. Does that remain in effect till legally changed?
  • Our lease states that a clothes washer and dryer are "furnished appliances." Knowing that they would be here is part of what made us decide to move here. We discussed it with our landlord before we moved in, and he said he would have take care of it. After two months, we still don't have a washer and dryer. When I brought it up to the landlord last week, he said he didn't remember the conversation, but if I wanted, he would buy a washer and dryer, and he would let us pay it off with our rent. I looked at the lease again, just to make sure I remembered correctly, and don't understand this.
  • i owe child suport can they or will take out of my check
  • Me and my ex have joint custody. I live in bisbee and he lives in sierra vista .He has memorial weekend and the following week with our son which he intends to take his vacation week. He is refusing telling me where hes taking vacation and I'm afraid hes taking him to california since hes taken him before without letting me know and that's where his girlfriends family lives. I'm afraid that my son is going to be more exposed to the corona virus. His father does not take the disease seriously. Is there a way to prevent him from going until the pandemic is over or atleast slowed down
  • Are landlords responsible for termites/ swarmers in apartment complex!? Lease states they cover “pest control but excluding “wood eating insects” and they are not responsible for any damage to my property because of them... !? That cant be legal. Its like living outside with all these flying termites.
  • I never signed the birth certificate. The courts have found the biological father but my wages are being garnished why is that?
  • I have a 5 month old son, the dad hasn't help out financially at all, there is an ongoing case in court for custody and child support. Will I be entitled for back child support for the past few months he hasn't paid for anything?
  • How long does it take for a new card to come in the mail?
  • I agreed to allow my son's father to change his last name. I signed the paperwork a full year ago, but he never processed it. Is there a statute of limitations on the petition I signed? My son was 20 months at the time and has since learned his full given name, so no longer wish to change his name
