QUESTIONS

  • My husband and I have been married for 19 years. Common Law for 4 years and 14 years Legally Married (State of NM). We have been separated for 3 months, if I decided to divorce my husband my reason is "Adultery". We have a State Marriage Licence and we married in Navajo Nation Court. Do I file with the State of New Mexico or Navajo Nation. We have 2 children therefore child support will be filed. And can I charge my husband and his companion with "Adultery"?
  • I live in an eight unit cluster of small houses and duplexes. The property has been inundated by tenants with dogs. The problem is the increased noise level from almost constant barking. The property managers are making money off the presence of the dogs and flat-out don't care. I'm being harassed by my neighbor. She makes her dog bark at all hours of the day and night. Any recourse?
  • Can a person from Mexico living in Mexico apply for child support in Arizona?
  • Is there a statue of limitations on custody papers? Can they be ammended at any time? is there a penalty for not seeing your child for over a year? I have attempted to see my son many many times but his father is not enforcing the custody papers. Do I have legal action against that?
  • ive been evicted from mobile home park court papers say if i return to the space i was living its tresspassing. but nothing about the park its in can i go visit friends there.or would i be tresspassing
  • how can i get my case number online
  • I have just found out that a judgement was found against me back in 2008. It is from a credit collection company. I never recieved a notice of this Judgement and I would not have know about this jugement as it has never appeared on my credit reports. This judgement lists both myslef and my husband. I never had a credit card with my husband in this state. I would have never knoiwn about this if I was not selling my poperty. He is not listed on the deed,so can the proceeds pay for the judgement. We where never notified of the judgement under the Rules of Civil procedure # 55.
  • A neighbor verbally agreed to pay half of the cost to replace a shared section of backyard fence after it blew down from a storm. She said she couldn't pay at the time but would pay later, and never has. She will not answer her door or phone, so I sent a certified letter but no response. Other neighbors paid when job was complete. She owes me $378. I want to avoid small-claims court but can't find information about mediation. What are my options?
  • I am unmarried and 15 weeks pregnant. My ex fiancĂ© is denying paternity most because he does not want the military to know he is having a child because it will cancel his assignment he signed up for that requires no dependents. I would like to legally establish paternity so that when the baby comes I will be able to apply for child support since he will most likely be deployed. I have heard mixed answers on whether or not prenatal paternity tests are legally admissible to establish paternity in Arizona. The tests are very expensive, and before I pay I would like to know if I can use it
  • MCan my sons father, who live in Colorado, take our son away from me? What are his legal rights to our son? We are not and never were married and he is on the birth certificate.
