QUESTIONS

  • Can a arizona bank refuse a power of attorney to cash my boyfriends paycheck if he is in prison?
  • I have full custody of my 11 year old daughter. She wants to live with her grandmother and I am going to let her. I do not want to lose custody, I do not want her address changed, I do not want to pay child support. How do I go about this?
  • I am a father with joint custody of my 2 1/2 year old son. His last name is his mother's on the birth certificate. How can I go about changing his last name to mine? We have had joint custody since he was 8 months old and I have been there since his birth.
  • My husband & I both agree on the dissolution of our covenant marriage. We have filed with Maricopa County Courts. I need to know if I have the proper forms to include with the standard forms given to me thru the court house.
  • Is it against the law for my creditor (car dealership)to contstanly contact me at work even after I have verbally requested them not to? What can I do to protect my employment as them constanly calling may jeopordize my employment?
  • My boyfriend has a 17 year old son who has been caught several times smoking marijuana and we just found out he is selling it. My boyfriend kicked him out by packing his things and bringing him over to his Grandma's house. The son left that house and is now living with multiple friends and stating he has been abandoned. The problem with letting him back home is the use and selling of illegal drugs. These are things my boyfriend could be arrested for if they are found in his home. What are his legal rights to remove the son from his home without being considered a child abandonment case?
  • My husband was recently arrested for sexually abusing my daughters. He is currently in jail awaiting trial for 3 class 6 felony charges. Of course I want a divorce, but I want to make sure that I proceed in a way that will most benefit my five children. I want to protect them from their father (get sole custody), and I want to do what will help us most financially. So is it best to file divorce papers immediately or to wait until he is convicted? If he is convicted does all of his property revert to me if we are still married? I am thinking long term, I know that I won't be receiving any child support so if the property doesn't revert to me on his conviction, is it likely that courts will give me all the community property in lieu of child support? Thank you.
  • My husband passed away with no life insurance, leaving a few thousand in credit card debt. I am only an authorized user on some of these accounts and my only income is disability. Am I responsible for paying these debts?
  • If a parent has not been in a childs life for over 15 months, is there a way to get them removed from a birth certificate and change that childs name? Parents were never married, custody and visitation rights were never established- the child lives with mother 100% of the time and doesnt even know her dad. Thank you!
