QUESTIONS

  • Our rental home has a termite infestation and it's been over a month and our landlord has done nothing about it. What rights do we have? I've been told by our property management company that termites do not qualify under any law to terminate our lease. Are we stuck living in this house?
  • My landlord sent me a check, for what I believed was compensation for my a/c being out for 3+ weeks with temperatures in the home exceeding 100 degrees. I contacted them to ask how the amount was calculated. They then responded that it was noted in my account that a check was sent to us, and would get more information. A few days later they stated that the check was sent in error, and to return the check. What is my legal obligation?
  • My parental rights were severed to my son who was born in 2003, members of my family have visitation rights. Is there anyway I can request to visit? And how old does he need to be to have contact with me?
  • My daughters fathers hasn't been around at all for her life so far, she is 4 years old, I want him to sever his rights to her so i can have all rights to her. But he doesn't believe she is his, so do I have to establish paternity first and than go from there since he isn't willing to sign over his rights?

The last duty station we were all at for longer than 6 months was in New Mexico. Kids and I are now staying in Arizona with my mom since March 3, 2015. Can I still file in NM since that's the last place we all lived, even if I don't have a current residence there? -we would both like to file the divorce ASAP.
  • Paid $150 for hair services and was not happy with outcome,. The business offered to fix for free under their 2 week service guarantee. After having the "fix" completed they attempted to charge me $75 stating that I had agreed to pay! I left very angry and wrote to the BBB. The business is charging me for theft and I want to know what options I have as I do not feel I should have to pay more for services that were offered to correct their mistake! I have pictures and the $150 receipt from the original service.
