QUESTIONS

  • My husband and I rent a home with my husband's two friends and 4 of us are on the lease, but one of his friends girlfriend is living in our home and is not on the lease and she is disrespectful and causes problems how can we legally evict her?
  • When I moved in this house was filthy, there were nails and plastics all through the landscaping rocks and weeds everywhere. We paid landscapers to clean up the weeds, paid for a deep cleaning service and we had to pick up all the nails. Once moved in we've had to replace weather stripping and other minor fixes because the owners refuse to pay. We bought a small dog and paid the pet deposite. The house is maintained and looks better than when we moved in. How do I get my deposite and pet deposite back at the end of our lease? And the back door is broken and hard to get in and out of.
  • I have 3 kids by the same man and his name is on their birth certificate and we never married. 7 years ago he was convicted of a sexual charge against my daughter and other charges and is in prison until my youngest is 18 years old. Before he sexual violated my daughter I had left him and was in a relationship with the man I’m married to today. My husband has raised my kids as his own for 7 years. Also the biological father was diagnosed as incompetent while he is incarcerated. Can my husband adopt my kids without his consent? So if I die he can raise my kids and not biological dads parents?
  • My landlord repaired a broken sliding glass door at my rental. It’s $280 dollars and he’s added it to next months rent. Do I have to pay the full amount next month or can I partially pay it off?
  • My child is 7 years old , I’ve been an only parent for nearly all of that time with the non custodial parent making inconsistent monthly visits for the first year of life and completely disappearing for the next 6 (by own choice). My child was unaware non custodial parent existed . They show up months ago requesting to meet child & now is demanding parenting time . Essentially I feel as though my child was abandoned by none custodial parent & would like to know what rights to custody and parenting time the absent parent is allotted to if any after being absent for 6 years?
  • My ex-girlfriend and I obviously separated and have not done any legal custody paperwork with our (she is the mother) two children (ages 3 and 1). The boys constantly stay at the house that I own and never go to their mothers. She only sees them at my house for the 40 hours that I work per week and that is it. Their addresses (including the mother's mail) all come to the house that I own. She has now grown upset and wants to take the children to some long distant relative in Colorado just because she is angry. I do have the 3 year old enrolled in a local Prescott Valley school as well.
  • The owner of a mobile home and rv park in apache junction states in the rules that all units must be owner occupied no rentals. But he rents them.legal or not. Plus the rules also say no rvs are allowed in the driveways but the "manager" has one behind her mobile hooked up and she has no and is attendind no monthly training.
  • What happeneds when I get sued for back child support? I don't have a job and I don't own a house.
  • My roommate moved her stuff out while I was at work. I want to get her off the lease but she refuses to sign the paper. How do I remove her without going to court?
  • I was terminated from my job because I injured myself, is this a legal practice that employers in this state can do ?
