QUESTIONS

  • My sister in law is pregnant and not married. She does not wish to be with the babies father and will be doing a paternity test when the baby is born. If the test comes back that he is the parent, does she have to make the babies last name the same as his in order to get child support? If he signs his parental rights away, does he still have to pay child support?
  • I moved states and left my card and case number. How do i clise my account.?
  • We lost our home a year and a half ago through foreclosure. They had strung us a long promissing to help, we didn't know there was other help out there. Is there a way to get the home back (it's not sold), is there any type of assistance for people who are already "homeless" We got a notice for settlement payment - is this our only option for assistance?
  • If someone under 21 is issued a citation for minor in posession, is that considered an arrest? Is there any way to get this removed from public record
  • My downstairs rental had water damage caused by the upstairs empty rental where the water was not turned off. Parts of the ceiling and walls had to be removed and a restoration team had to dry the wall. Being a home worker and this a very small place, I found a temporary rental. This happened mid-month, I was out for 2 weeks and now I am being asked to pay full rent on the first under the reason that I choose to be out. I have not been answered on when the place will be made whole again and if it would be of consideration to adjust for the days I was not living there. No answer was given,
  • What if the landlord (Apartment Management)don't do anything to help you seal or change your door , can you stop paying rent until they help you?
  • I have a question concerning FBI federal background checks. Is it true that the state only reports arrests to the FBI if there are fingerprints? If I have a dismissed misdemeanor, which did not require my fingerprints or an arrest, will the record be sent to the FBI?
  • I am recently divorced, and I got the house. He has personal stuff still here and I cannot get him to get it out of here. There is a lot of stuff and most too heavy for me to move. I've asked him several times to move it, even sent him letters that he had to sign for. Now he won't even answer his phone so I can pin him down on a date when he can have it done. It's his way of still trying to control my life and all I want is out and away from him. What options do I have to enforce this? It's been three months since the divorce and there was nothing on the decree that states a time limit .
  • I am a property/apartment owner I recently had my onsite property manager show a vacant apt. to some interested people shortly after they people looked at the apt they without any application or lease somehow moved thier belongings into the apt have paid no money no lease signing etc. and are participating in criminal behavior etc. but are refusing to leave the apt I live out of state but property manager has on several occasions tried to contact these people telling them to leave etc. but they so far refuse what do I do to get these people out of this apartment?
