QUESTIONS

  • Signed a lease agreement a few weeks ago to an apartment sight unseen due to current resident. Today, my wife and i received keys to the new apt. Immediately found a roach infestation. In every room and every corner, black and german roaches coming out of the walls. Not one thing has been moved in yet and we were in the apt for about3 minutes. Can we legally terminate and/or nullify this lease pre move in, due to health concerns with our newborn? I have video of the roaches crawling everywhere.
  • My ex-boyfriend signed the acknowledgement of paternity for my son even though he was not the biological father. Is there a way to disprove the paternity and have his rights to my son terminated?
  • My friend was issued a trespass ticket for being at a light rail station without a bus pass/ticket. The train was nowhere near the station & he had ample time to buy a ticket before the train arrived. Is this legal?
  • Me and my ex have a custody agreement but yet on my legal days she will not allow me to have him. How can she do that, and what are my rights? I do not feel I should have to pay child support if I am not being given my court ordered time. I also was wondering who is responsible for travel payment, because she moved out of state and will not pay to fly him to me for my legal days, she says I need to either pay to fly him out here or I can drive to Northern Arizona to get him if I want him on my legal days, can she do that?
  • Can a landlord go to court for forcible detainer months after you already moved out?

  • once the court granted joint legal custody does it ever expire? its been six years
  • I have 50% legal custody and 15% physical custody of my son. Can my ex-wife take him out of his current school and move him to different school with out my permission?
  • I have been divorced from my two daughters' father for six years, and have remarried. The past two years I have been a full-time stay-at-home mom, collecting zero income and zero child support. I'm looking to modify child support to receive some assistance with my daughters' expenses. My ex-husband has been refusing to give any financial information to generate a calculation or worksheet. Is it legal for him to withhold that information?
