QUESTIONS

  • What process do I need to do to evict a roommate who lives with me and is not on the lease. He is not behind on rent, is gone crazy thinking there are spirits in the house and thinks I have died. Again I am the only one on the lease. Thank you
  • I was employed by a Cruise Line located in Hawaii but I reside permanently in Arizona. I was wrongfull terminated by the company for supposed theft of alcohol during an event. There is no emerical proof of me doing this on video footage. I originally was a union member but as I was promoted to an officer on-board, my position changed to non-union. How can I go about fighting the accusations and being compensated for my travel exspensed home, defamation of character, and the loss of my job?
  • How do I contact the az legal help people? I filled out an online application but have been ignored. I have a judgement and part of that is for specific performance /forfeiture of my residence back to me after 3 years of no payments. I reside out of state because the bums have taken over the home and I need to gain possession. I was told I need a writ of restitution (whatever that is) and also told I need a lawyer to do this processing with the sheriff dept, and that is why I sought help from AZ law help. I have very low income $531.00 monthly
  • In 1990 my claim for PTSD was denied. I did not receive the claim denial letter, because I was imprisoned. I suffered with PTSD for another 30 years. Following a diagnosis of prostate cancer I again filed a claim for agent orange exposure along with another claim for PTSD. The agent orange claim was denied, but the PTSD was rated 100% service connected. I asked that the effective date be the original claim date in 1990, but that was denied. I am seeking help in appealing this to the claims court.
  • Six months into a twelve month lease my landlord sold the property. Now the new landlord is telling me that I must sign a new lease. Although she is not raising our rent, other provisions of the new lease are objectionable to me. Must I sign this new lease to preserve my status as a legal tenant, or must the new landlord accept the terms of my original lease?

  • I had my daughter 2 months ago and allowed my, then boyfriend, to sign stating that he was the baby's father.
