  • My husband of 20 years met a woman on the internet, moved her from Florida to Arizona, and put her up in an apartment. During the 5 years I tried to save money to get a divorce, he cleaned out all our retirement savings. As he didn't pay taxes, the IRS came after him for the $150,000 he took and also reduced my social security. I really need a divorce from him, but I'm SMI bipolar and he's mean.  Help me please.
  • I think I am being scammed. I received a letter from a previous business firm with a demand to pay. There is no account number, no return address and no signature on the abnormal letter head. How can I tell?
  • I filled for custody back in 2009 and we were awarded joint custody. The father of my children has no contact with our children. I want to modify for sole custody . I'm not sure if any judge will change the order? What forms do I have to file?
  • My brother owns a construction company and hired a homeless man. He told the homeless man he could temporarily stay in a trailer that had no electricity or water, but a roof over his head. This trailer is on my property and the homeless man has since been fired by my brother and I gave him an eviction notice and he has not made any attempt to move out. He built a shed on my property without permission using stolen material from my brothers construction company. How do I get him off my property? There was no written lease only a verbal agreement. I don't know what to do?
  • I did a plea bargain 9 years ago on a DUI. The court put out a warrant on me, they said I did not complete 36 hours of alcohol treatment. My attorney, does not keep records over 5 years. Can the city court bring up this after 9 years and say it was a pending case?
  • How gain custody of my child when I don't exist in his life by any documentation? I am his biological father,and currently his sole provider (for the past 6 months). His mother, my ex girlfriend, decided that being a mother isn't suit for her, and has told me that I can have all legal rights. However, I don't know how to begin this process of gaining custody. How do I begin? Who do I talk to? And what would be the easiest way of doing this if she's willing to give up all rights to our child?
  • Is a landlord required to provide you a copy of a move-out inspection list? I was provided one at the Move-In Inspection which I filled out. Now I just had the Move-Out Inspection and wasn't provided anything. what gives?
