QUESTIONS

  • I was told by a few friends that during the summer months in Arizona, when your involved in an eviction, that when small children are involved the landlord is unable to evict the family when there is no resources to provide shelter. Is this correct?
  • Question: I'm not divorced yet but I am separated. Can I change my last name to my maiden last name before getting divorced? How much would this cost me?
  • I was wondering if there is a form that i would beable to file agienst the other parent when it was court ordered that i get odd years to claim the child for taxes, but the other parent isnt co-operating and giving me my odd years to claim the child?
  • My 23 year old son was hit in a accident and passed away .He left a 3 year old daughter and I have had this little girl since birth 4 to 6 days a week daily .Her mother works and lived with me for the first 8 months of her life .My son also lived with me and remained with me even when they split .I have always provided for my grandaughter and she even has her own room here and because her mom and I were in a argument for her clearing out a armoire that had my private things in it after I requested her not to do so she now says I'll never see my grandaughter again. Do I have rights ?
  • I was convicted of a non dangerous sex offense back in 1984. Was a level 1 till I got convicted of failure to register in 2001. That changed my level 2. I dont understand, since the original crime was non dangerous and the second felony was a technical crime, that now I am dangerous. Is there any hope for any of the non-dangerous sex offenders getting off the registery? This would open time and money to monitor the actual dangerous sex offenders.
  • can a bullhead city AZ cop pull me over in Nevada? He followed me from BHC into Laughlin, but, did not put his lights on until we were in Laughlin. Is that legal?
  • My brother was charged and served 10 years in prison for recieving and selling stolen property in MI. He moved to AZ to find a job 2 months ago and he is looking forward to going back to school to become a paralegal. Will he be able to become a paralegal and he can he become a lawyer? He has no record in AZ nor any other state. Any advice is helpful. Thanks!
