QUESTIONS

  • I am divorced. My ex-husband commeted domestic violence when we were married a couple of times. Now, his new wife and him are picking on our 15 year old daughter. His new wife has threatened her with bodily harm as well as verbally abusing her. I don't know if this is child abuse, harassment, or domestic violence. What should I do?
  • I have a signed lease that states my rent is $680 for my student apt. Before moving in the apartment was changed and the new rent became $50 more per mo. I paid this, but never signed an adendum to the original lease - this is my first apt rental. Do I have any recourse to ask for the $50/mo back (now totaling $250) since the amount was never part of my lease or because I paid it, does it mean implied acceptance and binding. They are charging me a break lease fee and I'm trying to get them to come down on the amount. I feel I was taken advantage of since I'm young.
  • I am representing myself in a modification of child custody.We have a trial set for November of this year. Throught all of the proceedings my ex-husband has not responded or filed any countering affidavits. His wife is now saying she will represent him in court as she has power of attorney over him. He is out of the country for 3 years (the courts are aware of this) but he is not with the military. Does the POA give his wife any ability to represent him? File statements or court documents on his behalf?
  • Where can you go for legal help and/or an Attorney when the other party has "poisoned" the Legal Aid pool and you can't afford an Attorney?

Creditors are coming after me for the debts because he didn't pay them and 1 creditor is suing me, I answered the complaint and they filed a motion for a judgement and I have to answer in 10 days.
