QUESTIONS

  • My old Apartments received a judgement for 2400 and now the collection agency is trying to get 3000. I asked for all proof of debit and judgment and all they sent was a copy of lease and the ledger from apartments adding the extra 600. Can they collect more then the judgment?
  • My children's mother dropped the kids off with me December 31, three days after my agreed weekly visit not wanting to be responsible for taking care of them anymore. Ive got documentation and witnesses that she dropped them off with the intent to sign over her rights as a mother so she could do as she pleases. How do I protect myself legally so she cannot come and go taking them from a stable home after not being in contact once for the past five weeks? She dropped them off at my job with only the clothes on their backs. I am employed and have constant care for them, how do I protect myself?
  • I lived in California when I got approved for ssdi and I was approved for backpay I moved to Arizona within the year of 2013 and now they are telling me I don't get my backpay because of state rules being different but I should get the backpay for 2011 thru 2013 I am entitled to right?
  • If I signed a one year lease with a landlord and now a new landlord buys the property, does the new landlord have to honor that lease? Or can he tell me to leave? Does he pay my security deposit or does the old landlord pay my security deposit?
  • My 10 year old's mother moved to NY. She did so without notice and has no intent of wanting him to move there. We currently have joint legal custody. How do I ensure that when he visits she will return him as agreed upon and that it doesn't look like I willingly sent him there for more than a visit? Also, can she sign to give me sole decision making and physical custody since she is not here to make major decisions regarding school, health, etc.?
  • We were told by a job worker that if my husband is going to school full-time (for 10month prgm) that that would be considered his full-time job to get cash assistance and i would be able to stay home with our 2 children who are 5 and 3
  • I have a question concerning tenant/landlord laws.
  • My ex husband's new wife has made a threat-" that if I ever go to Sierra Vista, she will have her first husbands , friends fron the pen, have me "taken care of"". Her first husband was a drug dealer who was murdered, so this is not something I take lightly. And my daughter hasnt seen her dad for over 2 years, because this woman was verbally abusive to her. She is also a convicted felon. Is this a felony crime? And can I be protected from her, or her thug lifestyle friends? I live in Tucson.
  • I live in Northern NV and had a felony DUI in Pinal AZ in 2008. I can't seem to find the link to Pinal county superior court to request the expunge application. What do I do? Where do I call?
  • My wife and I are living separate and have divided all of our assets and financials. Also we signed a contract to protect one another. Will this hold up in court if we decide to get divorced later?
