QUESTIONS

  • The links provided for expunging or sealing of records and restoring rights for Maricopa County does not work. Anyone know where this form can be found,downloaded and printed?
  • My trial was scheduled more than 10 months after the Plaintiff filed a lawsut. It has been over 2 months since my trial and there has been no ruling. Can I file a post trial motion to dismiss based on the 10 month rule in Az? This is a civil debt matter and I filed everything in a timely fashion. At trial the judge halted the trial half way thru as he said he was unfamiliar with the new amended AZ laws. It has been over 365 days since they file a complaint and over 2 months since we both gave him our memorandum of case law after trial. Question is should I wait for a decision or file a motion?
  • My brother has been diagnosed with stage IV cancer. Both our parents have passed away. Can I take a leave of absence under the FMLA to care for him? Would a personal leave of absence cover this situation?
  • If my child's father has filed a custody case do I also need to file?
  • I am a single adult with out children, no income or medical insurance, when can i apply for accchs?
  • I have a man in my home that was my boyfriend although there has not been a relationship for over two months. There is no lease or contract, he does not pay rent, he has stopped working and verbally abuses me and my children to the point my children are staying elsewhere. He refuses to leave so how can I get him out now?
  • My husband & I are legal guardians to a non relative child age 15. We have had him since he was 7. Mother's location not known. Father never in picture. We would like to transfer guardianship to our son & his wife. How do we proceed with this? The child was a ward of the state and we do receive cash assistance, health benefits and free lunch at his school and would like that transferred to our son as well. We do not want to incur any legal costs. Thank you.
  • My parents helped me purchase a home, they did not like who I had living there and have now "evicted" all of us and are selling the home I have been paying on i for several years. We had no written agreements and now my mother is selling it and suing me and the other parties for damages. Since she is selling the home and not repairing it, is she able to sue us for damages and unpaid "rent"?
  • I had a roommate who was on a lease for a home we rented. Roommate never paid rent and was physically and verbally abusive to me and my 14 ye old son. Roommate said she was moving out multiple times but never did when deadline came. Roommate agreed to a lease amendment and move out in 30days but never signed. Instead roommate got an order of protection and had me & my son removed from home. eviction occurred. Paid writ of restitution and geot new lease. While barred from premise roommate stole $20 of property $3k of which was 3rd party’s. Is the 3rd party property theft criminal or civil?
  • My husband was evicted from the home October 24th of 2016 for domestic violence. It ends October 24th 2018. Since that time I have made up two house payments that he missed and have taken over or mortgage and have been taken overall expenses of the house including upkeep of the land. The locks were changed by the woman shelter. How can I keep him out of my home that I am paying full on myself? Is there any law or form that I need to file to keep him out?
