QUESTIONS

  • I recently found out that I am the bio-logical father of a 14 year old daughter who has been adopted. I never knew until June 2011 that I was this child’s father. What rights do I have since this was done without my knowledge? This was actually done in Colorado but I reside in Arizona. I do not want to up-root my child from her adoptive family as she has been with them for 6 years but I would like to met her and let her know that I did not abandon her and I am here for her if she wants to get to know me.
  • My decree states that my ex-husband has supervised visitation. The person who was supervising was my mother, who recently passed away. There is no other family member or friend that can do the supervising. We have tried to have me supervise but we end up fighting during the visit. Will the court supervise or is there a program that will supervise?
  • Can I receive back child support for a child that is 19? I never received child support.
  • If we are moving into a house and the Tenant did not clean after they left and we are cleaning it. do we have to pay a deposit.
  • My apartment has recently been bought out by new management. They have renovated the community entirely as well as apartments when people move out, they have requested me to vacate when my lease is up, or stay on for double my rent. Question, if they are gutting my apt entirely, how should I leave the unit when I leave to ensure I get my deposit? I’m obviously going to clean, but, how thorough do I need to be? Everything is being replaced, from doors, flooring, appliances, countertops, cabinets.. etc.

My daughter has a job and is the sole income producer of her household.The father of the boy ran up large debt in my daughters name,which she now must repay.

Can a grndprt file child support on behalf of a grandchild?
