QUESTIONS

  • I have been living in phx since 08/2018. My twins were born on 10/8/18 in phx, AZ. Their father served me papers (ie: custody, child support) in 07/2018 in Lincoln, NE. His name is not on the birth certificate. We already broken up before I got pregnant & I was already planning on moving to AZ b/c all of my family/ support is here as I have none in NE. He too was originally planning on moving to AZ when I told him the news and later changed his mind. Which court would have jurisdiction? Can NE make me move back with the twins?
  • Can I apply for food stamps (for the children only) if I am a non-relative guardian only applying for the children?
  • Im 16 and pregnant.I want to be emancipated,but I feel I may need public assistance such as food stamps and cash assistance because I'm currently unemployed.I also need help finding a place because I'm getting kicked out.Can a pregnant teen become emancipated and get on food stamps and cash assistance/?And is there anyone who can legally help an emancipated pregnant teen find a place of their own?
  • During the final divorce could I change my name back to my maiden name but also keep my married last name, Just hyphen it? EX: jane doe-smoe
  • My HOA billed me for fence painting that was done before I owned my house. Am I liable for paying for work done before I owned the property?
  • Can a lender sue for a deficiancy balance(first mortgage only)on a townhouse or condominium? Does AZ33-814 prohibit the recovery of any balance due after trust property is sold pursuant to the trustee's power of sale, or the trust deed is foreclosed in the manner provided by law for the foreclosure of mortgages on real property.
  • landlord last month told all residents of the park that we are going to have to make rent payments online. they have set it up through a company called "PayLease" and are planning to make an addendum to current lease and all future tenants will also be required to pay online. a fee will be charged if tenants want to pay by check or cash. is there anything we can do?
  • My landlord has yet to return my security deposit. She keeps saying "I'll do it soon" but doesn't. I don't think she has much intention of returning it soon. In her lease, it states she has 30 days to return security deposit, I was unaware that in AZ she only has 14. Since I signed her contract, do I have to wait the full 30 days or does AZ Law of 14 business days trump that?
  • We have lived in our apartment for just about 9 yrs. my landlord has completely ignored basic maintenance of this place. I have two giant holes in my ceiling (bedroom.) Termites in my son's room. No garbage disposal, which my landlord has bragged about not replacing to other tenants. He always wants to save money, so the few things he does replace are in poor condition or are jerri-rigged. Our main water valve is connected to our neighbor's. Swamp never wrks. He shows up unannounced or doesn't show up for agreed upon time. And more! What are my rights to get my deposit back and move out?
  • Ineed to find a lawyer who is willing to take my "Age Discrimination" case. I was working for Arizona Department of Transportation since September of 2006 until I was terminated on April 15, 2011. I was doing a great job and performing well and was only 3 years away from full retirement. I believe I was let go on the basis of age. They want to dperive me of full retirement. P.S. I need a lawyer who is able and willing to fight for my case.
