  • I am helping my daughter, who lives out of state and has guardianship of her father, move him to an assisted living facility. He has diagnosed dementia and severe major depressive disorder. He now lives independently in an apartment. His primary care doctor feels it is no longer safe for him to live alone. Under Arizona law, is there a way she can terminate his lease early without paying all the penalties and the stipulated two months rent since his move is for health reasons?

  • My AC is not working. I have grandchildren living with me. I have notified landlord, but he has not sent anyone to repair. How long do I have to wait for a response from landlord. If he doesn't repair soon, I will have to go to a hotel. I have already purchased 2 fans,(blowing hot air only) We cannot live in this hot house. What are my rights?
  • I was convicted of a DUI, and have 10 months remaining on unsupervised probation. I would like to have my conviction "set aside", and if possible have my probation terminated early, because I will be applying for a nursing license in 6 months. I don't have the money for a lawyer, and am wondering if there are any ways/resources people could lead me to, to do this on my own.
  • I was in process of loan modification with my bank, and house was foreclosed on. I was notified after the foreclosure date, and now have been given Notice of Demand for Possession. What options are there to have 30 days to vacate and financial assistance to do that?
