QUESTIONS

  • If there is a broken sprinkler valve, are we, the tenant, responsible for fixing this or the landlord? I have requested the landlord to fix it but they are saying it is our responsibility. It was given to us in working condition but it has broken. We have lived here for almost 2 years now. Thank you!
  • My landlord gave me a noise complaint and unauthorized tenant notice on April 11, 2018 . I asked landlord, who is the unauthorized occupant. She said your son. I assured her that , my son do not live here, buy he is my babysitter while I'm at work. Then on May 4, I went into pay rent , The landlord received my rent. I asked her how is the noise, she stated it have not gotten any better and you totally disregard the 10 day for having an unauthorized occupant. I told her I told you my son do not live here. The landlord said he is always here and I told her , yes, because I'm always at work.
  • When my 3 year old daughter was born her father refused to sign the birth certificate, he requested a paternity test be done through the state, after paternity was established they then established child support , my question is because he has not filled out any forms asking to amend her birth certificate or acknowledge paternity does he still have rights? I'm getting married and would like to have my new husband adopt her (i know her bio father will no longer be responsible for child support) and everything was done through DES.
  • In 2005, I had double strokes which left me unable to walk, memory loss,or to feed myself. My youngester daughter always took care of me. During that time I lived by myself in my home. My only son volunteered to stay with me in my home and take care of me. He lied to me in Dec. '06 and made me sign over the title of my home. He no longer wanted to take care of me so he told my oldest daughter to take me for the weekend while he changed the locks to my home. My oldest daughter then took me to my grandaughter's home and left me there. Now I am living with my youngest daughter and want my home back. I was in no mental condition to know what was going on, I trusted my only son.
  • The child support worksheet has childcare listed, what does the word discretionary mean next to it? My children's father is suppose to pay childcare costs and now refusing because he says the word discretionary means its up to him to decide. Is that right? This amount is also a factor in figuring out the final child support amount? He pays 452.80 for 3 kids. But refuses to pay the childcare...just need some advice. Thx
  • Is a condo covered in the anti-deficiency statue of Arizona? My condo is one of a 4 unit building. Is that a single family dwelling? I am the only person who lives in it. Can someone please help?
  • I have had a good job working overseas for the past 3 years. i am now moving back home for good, taking a very large pay cut because i want equal custody of my kids. If we go back to court can I have the child support removed because we will now have joint custody and I will have taken a significant pay cut.
  • my boyfriend gave me the keys to his blazer and let me borrow it, i've had it for a month, can he report it stolen?
  • My daughter had sex with her 16 year old boyfriend after school. She lives with her dad. I have had him over on weekends but I have supervised them. Now they say they had sex at my place. Can anything be done to me. I didn't know they had sex here.
  • Had no option moving in with my parents. I am 51 not 17! My dad continually opens and reseals my mail! I have no proof to back me up. What should I do? It would be a added expense for me to obtain a monthly mailbox at the Post Office. I am unable to sit and wait for the mail to be delivered daily. The letters are definitely resealed with glue! Thank You
