QUESTIONS

  • Is it correct (IN ARIZONA), that FMLA Act does NOT include siblings.
  • I am currently trying to find an organization or agency to help a victim of domestic violence move her belongings from Glendale, AZ. to Peoria AZ. Is there an organization the can help?
  • I have a vacation rental that I need to sell. Does the new owner have to honor any future vacation rentals?
  • Can a minor attend their court hearing with someone other than their guardian?
  • My husband was laid off two months before our lease was up and they would not agree to a settlement so they are now suing us for an extreme amount above what we owed depsite the fact we cleaned our condo that was filthy when we moved in and offered what we could and they still have our security deposit . We had to move in with his mother due to not having any source of income, do we have any rights in this case?
  • I am defending myself in a case. I have a witness who gave a recorded statement to my insurance company. The witness gave permission to my insurance company to release the recording to anyone wishing to investigate the incident. Can I use this recording in court as evidence? Does the witness need to be present in order for me to use the recording? The witness may not be able to appear in court and that is why I am asking.
  • How can I request a paternity test for a child I have been ordered to pay support on? Unfortunately I did not seek legal counsel when I received the initial papers and wrote my response stating I did not believe I was the father. I did not pay the filing fee of $231 so they denied my statement. Where do I go from here? I live out of state.
  • I signed a year lease, and moved into these apartments on 12-14-2012. That lease ended 12-31-2013, but we wanted to stay in the complex, but in a downstairs unit. None were available then, so I signed what should have been a 3 month lease, but when I read it again, it shows the lease started on 4-1-2014, and terminates on 3-31-2015. We finally moved downstairs, and I signed a year lease on 5-19-2014, that terminates on 4-30-2015. My landlord is "renovating" and isn't renewing my lease. However, she has the terminating date as 3-31-2015, which was the old lease's date. What should I do?
  • Is it legal for my employer to offer health benefits to same-sex commited partners but not to opposite-sex commited partners?
  • A pipe busted and flooded my apartment. It's been 2 weeks and they still have fans blowing and a humidifier. I'm pretty sure I see mold in walls and our manager is denying. I took videos. Also, I have an srp box that I load money on for electricity. I use $45 a month. I've already spent $100 in less than 2 wks in electricity cause manager said fans have to stay on 24hrs and it's my responsibility to keep electricity on or they will get lawyers involved. I can afford to keep putting electricity. I've been out of my home almost 2 weeks. Please help.
