QUESTIONS

  • I have lived with my brother for 2 yrs.I went out of town for the wknd,and he texted me that he wants me out,has changed the locks and refuses me access to get my belongings. There was never any written or oral contract for rent though I have given him money and have paid for repairs to the home. Can he lock me out because he feels I've disrespected him? He's also threatened me with police action if I go on the property. After I have cooked,cleaned and maintained his home what can I do?
  • Can a misdemeanor for domestic violence be expunged?
  • My ex and I moved into a place together, now that we are not together neither of us is willing to move out of the rental. The utilities are in my name, I get mail here, since we moved in a couple months ago he has paid the rent but I have paid the utilities and groceries ect. Can he legally kick me out and make me leave?
  • I am married with one child and carry my maiden name. I would like to hyphenate our daughters last name to show my maiden name and her father's last name. Can I do that?
  • My trial was scheduled more than 10 months after the Plaintiff filed a lawsut. It has been over 2 months since my trial and there has been no ruling. Can I file a post trial motion to dismiss based on the 10 month rule in Az? This is a civil debt matter and I filed everything in a timely fashion. At trial the judge halted the trial half way thru as he said he was unfamiliar with the new amended AZ laws. It has been over 365 days since they file a complaint and over 2 months since we both gave him our memorandum of case law after trial. Question is should I wait for a decision or file a motion?
  • The ownership of the mobile home park is requiring that I pay to repair a sewage line attached to my mobile home that has deteriorated over the years due to no fault of my own. Is this legal, since I own only the mobile home and not the lot it sits on.
  • M.H. owner & M.H. space renter of 19 yrs.. finally given :. agreement but don't follow AZ. laws. Sent a request to Landlord to bring lease up to fo;;ow M.H.P provisions but still no response back from him. They now are trying to evict for late rent payment they refused because I didn't include utility charges due to the unlawful ways of billing proof. I told them to first meet the request's of the lease and then it will be paid. I had full rent $400.00. Utilities are separate from rent. Can they still refuse my rent payment for space? And what are my rights if lease is unlawful?
