QUESTIONS

  • My finance is the father of child. As of now the child's mother is no were to be found the child was given to paternal grandparents last year, they currently have legal guardianship in CA. The child has been in our custody for the last 2 weeks in AZ. How do we start the process for legal custody.
  • I filed for support.. he just filed an temp order.. was ordered to do a hair follicle.. I haven't.. can they still take my son?
  • Asked to surrender and have my photo ID withheld from me during a routine inspection of a unit for possible rental. First told was for safety reasons then told "was AZ law". Since it is not the law (?)- was this an attempt to swipe all information from DL without my permission while I was looking at the rental unit or was this an deliberate act of discrimination?
  • I've heard that you can use FMLA "days' for various reason such as PTSD, Migraines and such. Is this true/valid? I don't see this sort of description under the act itself.If covered under this I heard you were protected for one year where you cannot be fired for taking various days off due to a short term illness.
  • If the landlord evicts me for 3,000 $ back rent on his lot, does he take ownership of the 50,000 $ Manufactured Home and everything inside?
  • throughout my pregnancy the father of my child wasn't around because I felt threatened by him and when I gave birth I gave my son my last name which means he is not in the birth certificate hes been around , spend time with our son but now he wants to take me to court to change the last name . what can I do to keep my last name? and no we weren't married or planned on it
  • Is there a place where we can get a Financial Power of Attorney Form with no charge. Do you know if more than one person can be names as POA? like my daughter and my son both?
  • My 36 year old daughter died recently in a car crash. I have had to make all funeral arrangements, so sent my ex-husband the bill for him to pay HALF. He is bulking at paying it. We are both next of kin, do I have to pay the whole $7500 myself, or do I have any recourse to make him own up to his responsibilities to his deceased daughter?
  • In our lease it states that we must perfrom regular maintenance to the outside. We live in an HOA, and have complied with all request, and kept the property in good condition. We are about to move out, and suddenly the landlord is saying that we must perform landscaping on trees, and bushes that were neglected for years. We have kept everything well trimmed, but there are areas that there is at least 10 years of old growth (cactus, and palm trees). How much am I on the hook for with respect to pre-existing landscape conditions.
  • I am a section8 tenant and recently found out that I am not responsible for any portion of the rent because The City of Phoenix Section8 pays the entire rent amount and has done so since I began living in the unit. I have paid $50/mth on top of what they get from section8. I was told thats what Im suppose to pay and have done so since I moved in. Now that I have this information, I would like a refund of the payments made that were made. What is the best way to formally request this money?
