QUESTIONS

  • I was convicted of a non dangerous sex offense back in 1984. Was a level 1 till I got convicted of failure to register in 2001. That changed my level 2. I dont understand, since the original crime was non dangerous and the second felony was a technical crime, that now I am dangerous. Is there any hope for any of the non-dangerous sex offenders getting off the registery? This would open time and money to monitor the actual dangerous sex offenders.
  • Can i file for a petition for paternity if the child isn’t born yet? If not when is the soonest i can?
  • I have been trying to go through the Department of Children's Services to get my ex wife (who lives in Alabama) to pay child support for almost 3 years now. Is there anything I can do through the legal system to finally get this resolved? Three years is an awfully long time to get a mother to pay child support when it took her a matter of weeks to get the court to issue an income withholding order on me when she was the custodial parent.
  • My ex- fiancée and I have joint custody(decision making). Last year March17, 2014, she was arrested for domestic violence( class 6 undesignated felony), ( discharging a firearm at her boyfriend),and received supervised probation, 3 yrs. In June of 2015, she was once again arrested for violation of probation and placed on IPS and extensive probation till 2017. Because Mother is violent and has potential to cause emotional and physical distress to my 5 yr. old daughter, do I have legal right as her father to file for sole custody and decision maker? Currently we have equal parenting time.
  • How can I avoid being solicited by telemarketers and marketing mail?
  • Ive complained about a car alarm that constantly goes off right outside my bedroom window and nothing is being done about it what can I do
  • Prior to signing the current lease I have, I paid the owner directly. I signed a contract with an agent in April and now the owner claims I did not pay for Jan., Feb., or March. Now the agent is adding $2,700 for those three months. Can she add on fees to my current contract if those were fees I paid before signing with her?
  • The issue of Right of First Refusal has come up. Can the Right of First Refusal be customize to fit our needs, or does AZ law always require one parent to notify the other parent when they can not watch the child during their scheduled time, even if it is only for an hour or two. Can the plan be written stating that if the absents is longer than 8 hours than the Right of First Refusal applies, but if the time is less than 8 hours the parent has the right to contact the grandmother to watch our child? The grandmother has been involved in our child's life since birth. Custody is joint. Thanks
  • how can I find out if an order of protection was served?
  • i got pregnant and i found out later that my boyfriend is still pretty much married but separated.and he was living with me for almost 3 mos and i kick him out coz we are having problem already.my question is: If I use my last name when our baby is born on the birth cert. will i still get a child support or that will be a prob.? and he wont tell me his Soc.Sec number and the address of where he works..and he is paying child support for his 3 kids
