QUESTIONS

  • My ex-husband just got arrested for an extreme DUI. We have gone through mediation in the past and he agreed to "conditional sole custody" but now disputes it. How would I go about getting sole custody with supervised visitation? Do I need to go through mediation again or do I go straight to a hearing? 
  • I put a deposit down on a rental and upon getting the keyes for 12 hours, was allergic to the house-I. I never signed the lease. I informed the owner in writing that I could not live there, and never signed the lease. He is keeping my deposit and saying it is binding because I took the key. Can I get my deposit back if I never signed the lease? He sent me a counter offer to the lease asking for more rent and deposits, and it was never executed.
  • I live in a 55+ park, on 10/2 The Gas was shut off due to a leak, The master Pipe under my trailer needs repair, I have been told 3 times that it would be fixed and I would have gas. The only thing done is my Meter was removed and the pipe capped off, so everyone else would have Gas, and that took 24 Days. What is a reasonable amount of time for repairs
