QUESTIONS

  • We just found out there are bed bugs in the home we rented. Who is responsible to pay to get rid of them. It is going to cost $1200, but it will be guarenteed.
  • Can I withhold my rent from my landlord if there is mold in my trailer? I noticed there was mold growing around my sons cooler in his room (a/c unit) , I notified the landlord and told him about it and he promised he would send someone on that money (it’s been 3 weeks now). My son is 9 and has to sleep in the living room because of this problem , I also recently had a baby(she’s 6 months) and would hate for her to get sick from this. What legal action can I take? Also before we moved in we were promised that they would switch out the old bathtub for a new one and new flooring but nothing.
  • I got married in the state of Philadelphia, PA in 2004 and I have been separated since the year of 2012. I moved to the state of AZ in May of 2014 and I want to know if I can get a divorce here in the state of AZ.
  • My ex spouse and I were divorced in Arizona and now live in separate states. She is trying to obtain my current address but I am concerned for my safety. Do I have to provide her my address? What can I do to file something than will protect my personal information?
  • My daughter conceived out of wedlock. Lived together the entire pregnancy, & was there for her birth. No doubt that I am biological father, however, my mother advised me not to sign the birth certificate & I didn't sadly. Baby was 14 months old when my EX developed drug & alcohol problem. As a result to this she was arrested & charged with domestic violence. A month after, she decided to move move with my baby from Phx to PineTop, AZ & has kept my her from me. Baby is 3yrs old now & her mom decided to move to CA. How can I get rights as a father? Can I get shared custody? Help Please!
  • I have no a/c in my apartment and the land lord just says they'll do something about it but never do and it's hot for me and my kids what can I do?
  • Is it considered abandonment of my children if I moved out of the home and moved maybe 4 blocks away? I left my husband but am still with my kids everyday.
  • My landlord is trying to evict us for non-payment of rent. I called her and offered to pay her rent through a charity. She refused it and said that she does not accept rent from charities.  Can I use this as a defense?
  • If the childrens father rights were terminated does his parents still have rights to them can they still ask for visitation?
  • My husband wants to adopt my 4 year old daughter who's father abandoned her from day 1. Is there a way to have her biological father ordered to pay back child support for the 4 years and to be able to terminate his rights so my husband can adopt her? Or will I only be able to do the termination and adoption?
