QUESTIONS

  • Can a landlord charge a non-refundable security deposit?
  • My boyfriend has a 17 year old son who has been caught several times smoking marijuana and we just found out he is selling it. My boyfriend kicked him out by packing his things and bringing him over to his Grandma's house. The son left that house and is now living with multiple friends and stating he has been abandoned. The problem with letting him back home is the use and selling of illegal drugs. These are things my boyfriend could be arrested for if they are found in his home. What are his legal rights to remove the son from his home without being considered a child abandonment case?
  • A girl was staying with me for 2 months and I never drafted a lease, she threatened the domain of my home as far as personal property is concerned and was completely insubordinate whether it be cleanliness, punctuality so on and so forth. In the end I kicked her out. What legal right if any is in her favor? To my understanding she was never a legal tenant so I would think almost next to none.
  • My daughter grandmother was granted poco parentis custody and sole legal decision making custody. What do I need to do to get custody back of my daughter? I'm currltey living in the same home as them. What steps or actions do I need to start for me to get my daughter back?
  • I want a divorce, husband doesn't. He is the cause of the divorce. When I talk about it he gets mad, makes accusations and threats. He does not get physically violent, but he has told me things like I cannot leave (or takes my keys or phone so I can't), or I cannot take the kids from the house, or says he will take the kids. He is very possessive and becomes a bully when divorce is brought up. On multiple occasions he has driven off aggressively saying his life is over without me and the kids. I feel like the kids and I need somewhere else to stay while I file to avoid more detriment. Can I?
  • If a child is charged with domestic violence against a parent and the child is 16, does this stay on the childs record permately?
  • We are tenting a beach house that is not in foreclosure yet but the landlord is not making her payments. We signed a 1 year lease. How long before the house will go into foreclosure? And when it does how long before we need to get out?
  • I just had a baby and an ex-boyfriend who is not the father of my baby is taking me for paternity test. Do I have to pay court fees every time someone wants to claim to be the father of my child. I was not even with him at the time and the father of my baby is on birth certificate and the baby has the fathers last name. Question is why do I have to pay court fees to respond, it's like anyone can petion to be the father and I have to pay court fees when I alresdy know who father is
  • I want to give my stepdaughter my last name, her biological father lives in Mexico and he hasn't been in her life at all. She's 10 yrs old and I have been taking care of her since she was 2. How can I do this If me and my wife don't know his whereabouts?
  • How do I file an amendment to my response for custody and child support, I would like to add that i want to discuss arrearages of child support and 1/2 med exp owed by father.
