QUESTIONS

  • Is Arizona a no-fault state?
  • My husband and I are getting divorced and have 4 children under the age of 12. We have not been able to reach an agreement on custody and temporary orders  included that joint physical custody be granted. In addition, there are "parentling evaluations" scheduled . What is a "Parenting evaluation" and what kinds of questions should I expect? Will there be an opportunity for me to provide the evaluator with inforation? Thank you!
  • i gave birth when i was 16 and the biological father was 20. he signed the birth certificate and left. the child is now 3 years old and he has never had any contact with him or paid child support. im trying to get him to sign away his rights can he do that and what papers would i need to do that? if i cannot would he be able to sign his rights over to my bf who has been taking care of him since birth. if that is what i have to do what papers would i need for that? also my bf is only 18 is he old enough to take guardianship of my son?
  • My daughter is being evaluated in preparation for a competency hearing. Her French husband filed for divorce three weeks ago. If she is declared incompetent, can the divorce proceed?
  • I had previously filled out paperwork to request a modification hearing. A hearing was scheduled but I would like to withdraw that request at this time. When I requested this I was unemployed and unable to pay, but I am now employed and paying as agreed, so I no longer need this modification. Is it possible to cancel this request and court hearing since I'm the one that requested this modification?
  • We purchased a dishwasher, refrigerator to replace the broken ones. Can we take them with us when we move?
  • I was laid off from my job. Is there a time deadline that the employer has to give me my final paycheck? This is delaying my unemployment benefits application. Thank you.
  • My friend has been living in a house that is owned by someone no longer able to care for herself.He was living in the residence helping the lady with taking care of the house and chores that needed to be done in exchange for rent. When the lady became sick and went to the hospital my friend was allowed stay and keep up the house. Before leaving the hospital she was deemed not able to make decisions or take care of herself. A fiduciary was appointed to handle all of her property and now he wants to put the house up for sale. He then ordered my friend out on the house in 2 days. Is that ok?
  • my wife left my kids and i. i want to know my rights if my wife wants to move back in and tries to make me leave?
  • I have 2 felony charges from 3 years ago in Phx, Az. I now reside and work in CA. I was advised by the judge that based on my income a court appointed attorney is not an option. Because the matter is an Az matter but i reside in Ca do i seek representation from ca or az?
