QUESTIONS

  • I am currently pregnant and not exactly sure who the father is. I met my boyfriend a few months after conception. He is aware of the situation and would like to adopt. I am leaving the father blank on the birth certificate. Can he adopt without notifying any prospects? Being that they have known I have been pregnant and wanted nothing to do it?
  • I want to file a law suit representing myself. Is this "In Pro Per" or "En Pro Per" ?
  • I am planning to leave my partner, who is verbally and sometimes physically abusive. We live together with our 4 year old daughter. If I take my daughter to live somewhere else (in state) would it be considered kidnapping? I plan on getting an emergency order of protection the following day as soon as the court opens. I want to make sure I am not breaking any law by removing her from her home.
  • If the house I purchased at Maricopa County auction was stripped of air conditioning, cabinets, fixtures and wiring and I know there are excess proceeds, how do I place a lien against the excess proceeds to recover the costs of replacing the items? What type of filing is necessary to recover the loss of these items?

  • My sister has been deemed terminal. She has 4 young children. She probably has a couple months to live and is stressing because her oldest daughters don't want to live with their dad but they currently have joint custody arrangements. Her daughters are 14 and 11 and their dad has another custody case that he just recently lost along with having a CPS investigation opened due to abuse from him to child. These girls were also in the car when he was arrested for DUI. Where do we need to start to be able to obtain sole immediate custody for these girls? we need some thing quick..
