QUESTIONS

  • My daughter, received garnishment papers from her employer from an apartment she defaulted on. She was never notified of any garnishment by the collection agency; she was never served or summoned to court regarding the debt. Do they have to notify her before obtaining a garnishment?
  • I was not evicted but I moved out of my roommates house 6 days ago. All my belongings are still there. He has changed the locks and has informed me if I don't pay hima certain sum of money that he is keeping my things. Is this legal?
  • I lost my job and am unable to pay my lease. What happens if I break a lease, yet there isn't a provision in lease regarding breaking the lease.
  • How does my granddaughter get an annulment? She has no income.
  • My ex mostly has custody of our four-year-old boy. She quit her job the same week we went to court and then got hired back once child support was determined based on her not working and living with her cousin. Now, her green card has expired. She did receive a temporary extension to March 2015. She received her card through a fraud marriage and lied to immigration about her address, of course all this was found out through court. If she does not get her card renewed can she legally take our son to Mexico and continue to collect child support as she continually threatens to do?
  • I am a homeowner, temporarily living and working out of state and have allowed a family member to live there rent free. She is taking over the utilities, I continue to pay the mortgage, taxes and insurance. She also will take care of maintenance and her own personal desired improvements, with permission, at her expense. My question is, does this relationship put me in a position of being a landlord, which I do not want to be, or am I a non-resident homeowner? Can you point me to state law and statutes on this subject?
  • My girlfriend is pregnant with my child and due in August of this year. Unfortunately she moved out and is no longer speaking to me.I do not know her due date or if she even intends to put my name on the birth certificate at this point. I would like to file a action with the courts to establish paternity before the baby is born.I want to exercise any and all rights I have as father. How do I begin this process and can I get any assistance in doing so. I can not afford a attorney.
  • If I rent my apartment do I by law, have to pay for home insurance?
  • The home I'm renting (leased through August 2015) was foreclosed on and there's a new owner. Do I have to pay rent to the new owner if I'm leaving in 6 weeks? Or do they have to give me an eviction notice? The new owner is demanding rent, but she doesn't have the deed yet, just a proof of purchase receipt.
  • Does my landlord have to have the correct size AC unit to support the sq. footage of the home I'm renting from him?

STORIES
