QUESTIONS

  • I am going through a child paternity, custody, visitation, and child support case. I left arizona due to a domestic violence situation with my daughters father. I am in need of legal help and have tried yuma community legal services. He has paid for a really good lawyer which I have no money to afford one at all. He keeps doing things that I had no clue you could do and am terrified of losing my daughter to him because of this. He is not interested in the child for the right reasons. And the child would be in danger in his care. I am completly broke, any thing i can do to get legal help?
  • My husband and I are in the process of getting a divorce, am I able to purchase a house before the divorce is final?
  • Original visitation & support orders were given in WA eight years ago. That order included $650 a month in childcare which is no longer needed since the child is 11. The custodial parent lived in CA at the time of order, but filed in WA. The non-custodial parent now resides in AZ. If the non-custodial parent was to modify the support order, what state would that be in …. in AZ? Or is jurisdiction still WA?
  • What is "Fair wear and tear" and how much can a landlord withhold from your refundable security deposit if there were no damages other than "Fair wear tear" or cleaning
  • I was charged with 13-3405A1/possession, and 13-3415A/paraphernalia. I moved to AZ a couple months ago, and have a valid Medical Marijuana card from CA. What am I looking at, as far penalties? Would it help my case to immediately get my AZ Medical Marijuana card?
  • Should I seek counsel in a case where I ihave a protective order and defendant filed an answer with a lawyer?
  • How long does my landlord have to make a repair that affects the security of my building, such as a broken door that allows people who don’t live here to enter a building that they advertise as secure? If they do not make that repair in that time frame, do I have the right to withhold rent?
  • I rent a room month-to-month. Today the live-in land lord told me to move. I know I have 30 days. Do I have to pay the rent on the first of the month?
  • I got a divorce about 7 years ago and it stated that my ex owes me some money but he has yet to pay in full. He had since moved to NC and gotten remarried. Can I go after them for the money? The decree doesn't state an expiration for the money to be paid but he refuses to make further payments to me. I also learned that he has recently bought a house. Can I put a lien out and file a document with the court to hold him in contempt for not paying me?
  • I have been divorced for almost ten years and my ex-husband has been remarried since almost immediately after the divorce and his wife is not demanding I change my last name. I have two children with him and have had the name for twenty years. Can he legally make me change it and what are the costs and requirements in doing so as far as notifying the appropriate people
