QUESTIONS

  • My mother gave me my 12 year old brother "temporarily" for an unknown amount of time and he is currently living with me, my wife and two younger children. What options do I have in terms of getting custody or guardianship of him.
  • I was wondering if my ex was allowed to ask me to pay child support from the day our child was born even though we were together until he was 4? Because my credit is reporting that I have not been paying my child support and it automatically comes out of my paycheck every time. I called the courts and they are saying it is because of back child support even though I have never missed a payment, now they are taking my taxes, so the money I am supposed to get back for my son with my current wife is going to pay my "back child support" What can I do??
  • I am listed as an occupant in my boyfriends apartment. There was an incident that i allegedly damaged a car parked outside the apartment complex gates. The incident was reported 2 weeks ago and there is no physical evidence that proves i did it ans no arrest was made after being questioned by police. I was delivered with a notice to vacate the apartment or my boyfriend would be evicted. Is this legal? Can they do that? We're current and paid up on our rent as well.
  • We've been renting our house for 5 years and our AC/Heat bills have always been high. We just found out that the garage that our landlord converted into a bedroom has no insulation. Does this room legally need to be insulated? And if so, is he responsible to refund us a portion for the unusually high bills?
  • My wife's neice has died. She has a 4 year old daughter that is staying with her great grandma. The father, the grandma and other family members are not eligible for custody. We are the only family capable of providing a bright future for the young girl. Do we have a chance at custody? Or should we just let the events take place.
  • who is responsible for taking care of a major issue of fleas in over half of the mobile home park? we just lease the spot our mobile homes are on.
  • What if I [the mother] am the only one on the birth certificate? Then does the father have to sign it?
  • 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?
  • So my vehicle was towed in a free parking spot in my townhome complex. I know that within our HOA rules my vehicle was parked for a period of time so they had the right to tow it. One issue that we have is that there are not enough parking in our complex at all. It is a complaint all residents have. They have made parking available as if there are only families with one car per unit living in the complex, when there are residents that are renting the a unit and may have up to 4 cars per unit. I was wondering if there is a law that mandates a certain amount of parking for a complex?
  • If I feel I earned more than I was paid, is there a government organization I can call to confirm that?
