QUESTIONS

  • I recently fieled Oder of protection against my exhusbands new wife. My children go to the school where she works. This makes it so I can not go to the house or thiere school to pick up my children on my days to get them. My ex will not meet me anywhere for me to get my children. What do I do, what are my options?
  • My ex husband currently has temporary custody of our three kids. The order was granted for a year. That year has past already and since then I have made great progress in life. It was my decision to give their father the kids because after he abandoned me and the kids, I was having a difficult time trying to support myself and my kids. Throughout our 13yr marriage I was a stay at home mother as he requested, so being as such, gaining stability did not come easy. Now that I have stability he makes it hard to be active in our kids lives. How do I regain rights to my kids?
  • Who do I file a complaint with if I have not received my security deposit or any statments within 14 days?
  • If you have been working for a total of 1 year and completed 1250 hours that year but due to the fiscal year and restarting on the hours starting January 1st does that affect you in receiving FMLA if you try to ask for it the next following year and have only completed 750 hours that current year?
  • The AC went out in our rental, today. We had it serviced two weeks ago and there was nothing wrong with it then. We put in a service order as soon as our renters called but they can not get our to fix it until tomorrow. The renters went to a hotel and our expecting us to pay for it. Are we responsible for paying for their hotel room?
  • My spouse and i both have a retirement plan thru our employer. We are 38 and 40 years old and getting divorced. Since we both have our own retirement plan, do we each get 1/2 of the others during a divorce? this seems silly? How does the court view this scenario? If only one spouse had a retirement plan i could see the division of it but it seems if both parties have a retirement plan, you would just keep your own?
  • I've been charged with possession of dangerous drugs and possession of paraphernalia. I have priors from a case in 2010 of attempted sale of dangerous drugs 2 counts and attempted trafficking stolen property. I did prison time for the stolen property and probation for the drug charges and I completed everything in 2012 including paying off all fines. My lawyer I hired because he said he could win my case. Since hiring him he has done absolutely everything to destroy my case. I am on the honor roll at college and they want me to do 10 years for the crimes. What can I do?
  • What is required legally to teach children as a private individual. I am starting an art class for elementary age children from my home. Do I need a back ground check or finger print card legally?
  • I own the mobile home rent the lot it has Two parking spots i leave a vehicle here year around. This year I drove my motor home down and parked it in the second parking spot. Not in the way of any thing. Has the land lord got the right to tell me I can't park it there.
  • I leased my home to partners with a small child 6 months ago. One partner left as the other brought drugs & wild parties to the home (as the neighbors attest). I would like to evict the remaining partner. What form shall I use?
