QUESTIONS

  • I am divorced and my ex left AZ after. My children are with me but he still has partial custody. He has not contacted or seen the children in 3+yrs. No card, call or anything. My current husband would like to legally become their father. I have no idea where my ex is or how to even contact him. I have an agency searching for him for non payment of child support and they cannot even find him! Could you tell me how to dissolve his rights as father so that my current husband can make them his kids since that is who they call dad. I also want his rights taken away because if anything were to happen to me I don't want him to be able to come in and take them because they wouldn't know him or feel safe with him because of past events.
  • How do I find out if there is a sale date for my home that is in foreclosure?
  • do you have to report your debt in a divorce, if you and your spouse have already agreed on how to split it up?
  • I have been mostly supported by my spouse the last few years. After a heart attack, I am no longer able to work and trying to get on social security so I can eventually receive medicare. Social security told me that I have not worked enough quarters the last 15 years to qualify. What about all the years before that?
  • We found out that ants our living in our walls. The property manager say's it is our responsibility to take care of all pest related issues for the mobile home we rent. If they are living in wall and we keep spraying, but they keep coming in is it really our responsibility to hire a pest control company to rid the home of ants in the walls?
  • I owned a house in 2005- when everything boomed it was way overpriced and there was a 1st and a 2nd. I went through a divorce and lost the home as it was upside down. It went into foresclosure and I never heard another word. This now 2019 and I received a letter in the mail saying the 2nd mortgage wants to settle with me for $5000 on a $92,000 note from that house- that was 13 years ago! Can they even do that? My house was upside down and then foreclosed on and sold.
  • How can I reduce my mortgage payment and/or principal? Is it possible to sue the bank and/or lender in order to eliminate and/or cancel my mortgage for fraud and/or TILA, RESPA violations? Do securitization audits and/or other mortgage audits work to accomplish these goals? What is quiet title and should I file for one? Thank you.
