QUESTIONS

  • My husband is a drug addict who has been evading service as of 2014/2015. Just when I was almost done with proceedings, he moved to a different state. I didn't have the money to start over and have since become unemployed. I don't want to end up responsible for his bills once my bankruptcy is through. How can I get help? My area states they don't handle divorces so I don't know where to turn.
  • I have a first time conviction DUI and it reads as a felony. I have done my time, paid my fines and attended my AA classes. It has been five years since my conviction. Can my record be expunged? I live in Hawaii and my lic is suspended and jobs out here require a drivers lic. Is there a way I can get my record cleared so I can reinstate my drivers lic?
  • My daughter was trying on clothes at Sears with a friend of hers. They were in separate booths and after they left they were stopped by a security guard who found several items of clothing in her friends bag. My daughter did not have a purse or a bag on her. The police were called, but the video clearly showed that they were using separate dressing rooms. The police declined to file charges against my daughter although charges have been filed against the friend. We just received a letter from a law firm representing Sears demanding payment in the amount of $168.00. Can they legally bill us?
  • We had an 80/20 mortgage on our home. In Feb it was foreclosed on. The first lender shows as a foreclosure but the 2nd lender(chase) shows as a charge off. I was told that there is something in the state of AZ that requires both lenders to report it as a foreclosure. Is there a provision code that I can contact Chase with to have the reporting changed to Foreclosure? Thank you..
  • I'm just curious in case things go wrong. But I'm hispanic & a legal US citizen, my boyfriend is Native American & we have a a child together. From what I've heard from a friend is that by law since he's Native, that he can have full custody of our child. I want to know if this is true, because he's on probation & has a bad record and where he lives with his mom is not so safe for our baby since she smokes. So I'm wondering with that in the way, if I would have more of a right to keep the baby with me?
  • I am a convicted felon, can I legally change my name?
  • I am being charged my full deposit 4 interior paint due to dirt on the walls and extra administration fee which requires me to pay more money is this correct under Arizona renters rights thank you very much for your time
  • If i get emancipated, could I get the child support check my father sends me and cash it myself?
  • Guy gets nailed with low level felony (literally weakest felony). First offense, so judge says no jail time if person commits to probation, drug tests, anger management. Problem is guy decides to leave the state, violating probation etc. Cops come w/ warrant but no dice. After 10 years he wants to come back to AZ. Question: If cops get wind that he's back can he get arrested? Can he possess any weapons of any kind? What about those samurai swords people hang on the wall for decoration? Can he be charged for something like that under these circumstances. Thanks.
  • I have left my house and my mom reported me as missing, and I have a daughter. I don't want to live at my moms house anymore. I am living with my baby's uncle cousin of her father and his wife, they are very good financially. What can I do in so the police can stop looking for me. I am not missing.
