QUESTIONS

  • In my daughter's divorce decree it states that her ex-husband pay me $3,900.00 at $50.00 per month, they were divorced May of 07. I haven't received a dime, is there a statue of limitations on this?
  • Where do I have a legal separation agreement turned into a divorce? Husband and I and our two kids lived in Japan from August 2014 to March 2015, he and I got legal separation through military JAG over there. The last duty station we were all at for longer than 6 months was in New Mexico. Kids and I are now staying in Arizona with my mom since March 3, 2015. Can I still file in NM since that's the last place we all lived, even if I don't have a current residence there? -we would both like to file the divorce ASAP.

  • My boyfriend and I (never married) had our son in TX and upon our agreeing to split decided to a three month rotation until he was old enough for school at which point I agreed to live where his father was so we could do one week on and one week off. I moved back to AZ and went to pick him up in TX after 3 months for my turn only to find out he moved from our house and is refusing me to tell him where he is unless I sign full custody to him. I calledthe police but in TX we both have 50/50 until a court were to say otherwise. Can I file for custody in AZ without him in my possesion?
  • My daughter has several psychological diagnosis' & gave birth to a premature son. She is not married & unsure who child's father is. The baby is in the NICU & mother does not fully understand the care guidelines given by NICU staff & doctors. Mother does not allow family access to the baby in the NICU as she does not trust her boyfriend's family. How can obtain a Medical Power of Attorney over the child as my daughter does not understand his needs & enforce visitation to the baby in the NICU? I fear for the baby's well being in his mother's lack of care & visitation at the NICU.

  • We bought our trailer in 1992 and have lived here since, our park has changed owners over the years, but now we are being informed that the new owners will be taking away the cable, and charging us for garbage pick-up which has always been included in the space rent along with sewer. We were just informed about the garbage pick-up today 10-9-2018 and as of 1-1-2019 we will be charged for garbage pick-up. Is this legal?
