QUESTIONS

  • I understand that when a divorce occurs, everything accumulated is community property. However, is a disability retirement subject to joint disbursement. My online research gives me conflicting answers. How do the courts interpret this?
  • What does a prenup protect you from and what is the best way to obtain a prenup?
  • I am 19 and am pregnant and I'm trying to find out how to get some money until I have the baby so I can start work again?
  • I applied for food stamps and cash assistance on 11/16/15 and was approved for foodstamps and have already received them. However, the cash assistance is still pending. I understand it can take up to 45 days for them to make a decision but my question is if it is approved will the backdate the cash assistance to the date of application or will it become effective the 1st of the month after approval?
  • While I was with my Mom at her boyfriend's house in CA, my friend and I walked in on them watching porn in the living room. They didn't hear us come in so she doesn't know that I know. I told my Dad and he is trying to decide how to handle this. I want to know (and so does my Dad) if this is reason enough for my Dad to get sole custody. Now they both have joint physical custody. Has a crime been commited and how will the courts view this event? Thank you.
  • My question is does Arizona limit or prohibit the elimination of implied warranties in used automobile sales by dealers? Put another way, does "as is -no warranty" eliminate all implied warranties?
  • My ex husband filed to modify child support to lower his payment. Before he filed I told him that I wanted to file to have the children during the whole week and modify our current parenting plan. So now he filed the child support modification should I not respond and have a hearing? Or should I file my own paper work to modify the parenting plan?
  • How many days after a 5 day notice do I actually have to be taken to court?
  • My dad will be coming out here from NJ. i would like to put a modular behind my house to care for him but let him live indepently. our post office is apache jct but we are in maricopa county district. so i don't have a city. where do i turn for information on this
  • I haven't seen or spoken with my husband in 8 years. I think he still lives in New Jersy but am not sure. I've lived in Arizona for 7 1/2 years and want a divorce. We have no children, no property, no finances, NOTHING to divide between us. How do I go about getting this done in the cheapest, most efficient way possible?

STORIES

  • He told me that I could actually get all the money I needed by using my home as collateral. . .
  • Age discrimination in the workplace. . .
  • I just helped my mother, age 89, deal with her Medicare HMO. . .
