QUESTIONS

  • What will happen if I don't show up for a summons to court for a answer to a protective order hearing?
  • I have a son that is almost 2. His father and I have been together for 4 years. Because of work we moved to CA 10 months ago. There is domestic violence in the relationship. I need to get my son away from his father into a safer environment. I am planning to move back to AZ. Does anyone know if I am able to file for full custody in AZ. My son was born in Gilbert and lived in Chandler from birth until we moved. (1 year) I am trying to figure out the best way to get back to AZ and obtain full custody while not endangering my son or myself from his fathers anger. Any advice is appreciated.
  • My ex husband's new wife has made a threat-" that if I ever go to Sierra Vista, she will have her first husbands , friends fron the pen, have me "taken care of"". Her first husband was a drug dealer who was murdered, so this is not something I take lightly. And my daughter hasnt seen her dad for over 2 years, because this woman was verbally abusive to her. She is also a convicted felon. Is this a felony crime? And can I be protected from her, or her thug lifestyle friends? I live in Tucson.
  • My boyfrhhiend has told me that he does not have any connection to our daughter. He has indicated that he is going to leave and has no interest in seeing her. Should I file for full custody even though he has no interest in any custody? What would I need to do to get it started?
  • My daughter recently lost custody of her daughter to the father. I have lived w/my daughter and granddaughter most of my granddaughter's life. Currently my daughter is on supervised visits and I, nor my granddaughter's siblings get see her but about 2 hours a month. Until my daughter has completed her court orders to receive unsupervised visits, do I or my daughter's other 3 children have any rights with my granddaughter that was given to her father?
  • My husband and I have been married for 9 months and I am 7 months pregnant. My husband has a daughter from a previous relationship. His parents (my in-laws) have stated they plan to file for grandparents rights. I know they have no rights over our son since we are married, however will they lump both kids together or not since they have two different mothers? They will try for time for our son, I already know that. I guess my concern is will they get any time with him?
  • On behalf of my 60 yo disabled client; she has a rude, intimidating landlord that continually threatens to deliver a "notice" to the tenant. I called on behalf of tenant and the landlord hung up on me refusing to answer my questions. My client is scared of her landlord and feels threatened. She also reported he yells and knocks on her door inebriated. What can she do?
  • Am i suppose to get a lawyer appointed to me by the court for a criminal offense such as racing.
  • I recently had a class 6 undesignated felony reduced to a misdemeanor. It still shows up as a felony on a background check, who do i submit copies of the order reducing it to a misdemeanor in order to get it off my background?
  • Is a landlord responsible for any illegal activity that might be going on with their renters
