QUESTIONS

  • The father of my son has his name on the birth cirtificate and also my son has his last name. But over the last 6 months, his father has shown no real interest in wanting to see him and hasn't helped pay for any expenses. My question is, is there anyway I can get my sons last name changed to mine so his father can't decide to come back into the picture a few years from now and try to get custody?
  • Is there a place where we can get a Financial Power of Attorney Form with no charge. Do you know if more than one person can be names as POA? like my daughter and my son both?
  • If you moved into a property, but never sighned a lease agreement, can you be evicted?
  • My ex girlfriend is pregnant with a possibility of it being my child. She is looking to leave state when the child is born. How do I in sure she gets a DNA test to know if it’s mine and what are my rights
  • It is time to renew my lease and a Bed Bug Addendum was added. It has harsh provisions for tenent payment of treatment expenses, even being responsible for adjacent units, even if you did not cause the infestation. The AZ law states you can be charged only if you fail to report. Is this Addendum legal. If I refuse to sign it can I legally be denyed the right to renew my lease? If I do sign it to renew the lease, will it hold up in court? Can you point me toward a lawyer in the Phoenix area who has experience with this? Thank you!
  • What are rules for Medicaid recipients with regard to the other spouses rights? I'm planning for if I would have to go to a Nursing Home.
  • My ex pays child support. He moved out of state in March 2014 and no longer can honor his parenting time nor do I believe he has notified the court of his new address. Is there something I should be doing as the petitioner? Can I report his address change? Do I need to file for an increase in support?
  • My parents were never married and my mom recently got married I was wonder if her husband has any custodial because they are married. Or does he only get rights if my father gets his parental rights revoked.
  • Can my landlord evict me if my electricity is out due to non-payment.? In the lease it states that water and trash is included and electric and gas is the tenants responsibility. Our electric has been off for 5 days but we've payed the bill and will be back on tomorrow morning. Can my landlord give us a notice of immediate termination ?
  • If my 81-year-old husband predeceases me without a will, how is his estate settled? We have no children together, but he has three grown daughters. The bank accounts, house and car pass to me because we own them jointly with right of survivorship, but what about other property he owns by himself?
