QUESTIONS

  • I have a 6 month old son ahd i want his last name changed to his real father but I hand my ex-boyfriend that lived with me, he wanted to be his dad so my son has his last name we thought it would work, but it didn't. Now the real father wants to give him his last name, how do I get my son's last name changed to his father's?
  • how do I apply
  • I have joint custody and am needing to file a petition to prevent relocation. The court gave me a blank title page packet. What do I need to include in this petition?
  • I live in a apartment complex. My brother has informed the maintence via voicemail previously that there was something leaking in the bathroom. This was about April. They have not done anything or put an effort to fix the mold- that was caused, I'm assuming, due to the leak spreading on the floor.  It is now black and the walls have softened. It's now August what can I do to break my lease?
  • I have a signed lease that states my rent is $680 for my student apt. Before moving in the apartment was changed and the new rent became $50 more per mo. I paid this, but never signed an adendum to the original lease - this is my first apt rental. Do I have any recourse to ask for the $50/mo back (now totaling $250) since the amount was never part of my lease or because I paid it, does it mean implied acceptance and binding. They are charging me a break lease fee and I'm trying to get them to come down on the amount. I feel I was taken advantage of since I'm young.
  • My employer has been deducting $20 from every employees paycheck every week stating we would get it back at the end of the year if there were no claims filed. It is a moving company and the employer carries insurance. It is past the end of the year and no one has received any of their money back. No one signed anything consenting these deductions either. Is what he is doing illegal and what should we do about it? Who do I need to contact?
  • My bank refuses to modify the note they are carrying on my home which is in my x husbands name (3 month marriage) where I invested the $40,000 down pymt and have made each and every payment since 10/05. what can I do???
  • I appologize for the repeat question but I cannot find my reference number. My sister is currently serving a jail sentence and my nephew is staying with his father. There is no court order on custody parenting time etc. but since my sister has been in jail his father is hasn't allowed me visitation with him. I am an active part of his life where I would have him 1-2 nights a week while both of them were at work and for the past month I haven't been able to see him or speak to him. His father has blocked my number so I cannot even check on his well being.
  • When in the middle of divorce proceedings, and one of the two spouses moves out to another residence taking all of his possessions, is it legal to have the locks changed on the marital home even though both co-own the home? The home is up for sale as listed in our beginning divorce papers.
  • I filed my divorce and sole custody paperwork through pima county courts because I was living there. Since then, both me and my ex-husband have moved out of state, and planning to move again, but my son, now 13, wants to live with his father until he is 18. What easiest way to modify the custody order to give sole custody to my ex-husband?
