QUESTIONS

  • My son is almost 9 years old and has never seen or met his biological father. He does not even know about him. My fiance has been his dad since he was 2. The bio dad has never attempted to see him or take responcibility and now that he is out of prison he all of a sudden wants to stake claim. Can he do this?
  • Our rental home has a termite infestation and it's been over a month and our landlord has done nothing about it. What rights do we have? I've been told by our property management company that termites do not qualify under any law to terminate our lease. Are we stuck living in this house?
  • One of my friends is 17 (18 in less than a month) and is graduating. She used to live with her mother in Georgia, and was promised a better life, but when she came out here, her father forced her to watch her little sister and brother. Her brother is autistic, and she can't keep watching him. Is there any way she can get out of this legally? Her schooling and her career are both suffering.
  • My husbands ex wife took out a loan on him without his permission and him being there. Is there any criminal or legal options to pursue her or is this something we have to civilly approach?
  • I live in a place that was built in the 60s and the plumbing is still the old school piping (not plastic) but our toilet is brand new. My sister put a baby wipe down the toilet and it plugged up the piping. The plumber came out and said normally a wipe is fine to flush but because the piping is ancient you can't. So it cost $200 to fix the problem and our landlord handed us the bill. Is this right? Shouldn't they be paying for this?
  • I live in a complex that has no steps just a dirt hill to my apt. I took a severe slip and fall, the mngt. says it's my fault and I cannot deal with them any farther. I have had lose of work and definate pain and suffering. I have med.records to prove.

  • I have Durable Power of Attorney for my mother who is in a nursing home. Does this obligate me for her debts?
  • We are senior citizens. A bank is offering us a home loan that we assumed was fixed interest-the rate dropped a fraction, even-then I happened to notice an unfamiliar phrase with a tiny checked box-'demand feature'. I looked it up: the bank can demand payment, calling the loan, at any time without giving a reason. It said that some states prohibit that practice. Is Arizona one? Calling the loan could destroy us and force the property into foreclosure.
