QUESTIONS

  • What is the homestead exemption and how it protect home owners?
  • My husband and I basically raised Our grandson for The first 3 1/2 years of his life. Then our son took our Grandson and moved out with a girlfriend. For the next two years we Would have him for 7 to 10 days at a time Then would go back with his father for a few days Then back to us. He started kindergarten about three months ago, So we got him on the weekends And would talk to him on the phone a couple times during the week .Our son and girlfriend got upset with us over something we said We have not seen our talk to him in a month and a half . Do I have any kind of legal visitation rights ?
  • Our 19-year old son was arrested for aggrevated robbery. If he receives a sentence on parole, would he be able to live with us in Germany, in a controlled environment, and better chances of finding a job, or would he have to stay in AZ, where his chances of finding a job are slim, and he has no family or friends, who he could stay with?
  • I work in outside sales. For a number of years my employer has deducted shipping costs from my commission for all accounts outside the metro area. Recently they have begun deducting the % of $ credit charges cost from my commission as well. They deduct this before my paycheck is cut. For example they show me a spreadsheet with my compensation as $7000.00 -500 shipping -500 cc fees (and sometimes other deductions) = $6000.00 since these fees are deducted can i write them off on taxes and is this even legal?
  • I had a job as a property manager which one of the perks was a free apartment. I was arrested off property for an non-work related reason. I spent four days in jail. The charges were later dropped. When I returned from jail, I was fired and locked out of my apartment. I believe it was wrongful termination, but that's another matter. My question is even though I was an employee, am I still not covered under the Arizona Landlord/Tenant Act? I think I should have had a 10 day Notice to Vacate.
  • My 14 year old son refuses to live or visit his father and we have not followed the court order for over 5 years what do I need to do?
  • My landlord seems to be blowing off some of my repair improvement requests on the house I'm renting. These requests include sealing the 3 doors to enter the house, open electrical outlets, the water heater makes the loud popping noises, insulation and overall sealing of the house. We get a lot of bugs inside, some of the wood post that hold up the carport are not secured to the roof. Even though the roof had been repaired before we moved in, there are still many spots around the house that are very visible, that it's obviously rotted wood. Am I allowed to renegotiate my rent?
  • My ex had 50/50 legal decision making and then left our child with me and moved over 150 miles away. He did not file for a petition for relocation and did not make any attempts to see the child for over a year. Does this constitute as him waiving his rights to the child since he abandoned him for over a year.
  • My sons father lives out of state but isn't on the birth certificate. does my sons father need to pay child support??
  • Can my landlord unreasonably deny consent to assign my lease? The lease states it is not allowed without consent but does not state whether landlord can unreasonably deny.
