QUESTIONS

  • I am a stepparent. My husband's ex indicated that I can not sign permission slips for the kids to attend school field trips. I checked with the district and they said I could as long as my husband agreed. I always send a copy of the permission slip to his ex (she has never provided the same courtesy to my husband). I want to do what is right and legal. May I continue to sign permissions slips and pay for field trips or must my husband sign these slips?
  • I moved out my apartment a month early and returned all keys. I recently tried to rent a house but landlord said there was a forcible detainer on my record. I moved out in January and record shows landlord filled forcible detainer in May but is shows no money owed. Can a landlord file after your already gone and how can i remove it from my record?
  • There is a gas leak between my meter & my mobile home. The park said it is my responsibility to fix it. I only rent the space. Shouldn't the utilities outside my home be the responsibility of the park?
  • Our insurance was cancelled for our rental unit. The carport needs to be repaired. The tenant has two cars that are broken under the carport. Legally he's allowed to have these cars on the property. He has been asked in writing to remove them and why and has not. What can we do?
  • How do i go about getting emergency custody of my child?
  • I am getting ready to file papers for mediation to try to change custody arangments . But my ex has moved 10 times in the past 3 years and won't give me his physical address. How do I go about having him served.
  • What form do I use to expunge a misdemeanor?
  • Me and my ex have a custody agreement but yet on my legal days she will not allow me to have him. How can she do that, and what are my rights? I do not feel I should have to pay child support if I am not being given my court ordered time. I also was wondering who is responsible for travel payment, because she moved out of state and will not pay to fly him to me for my legal days, she says I need to either pay to fly him out here or I can drive to Northern Arizona to get him if I want him on my legal days, can she do that?
  • The law provides that if my landlord does not return my deposit less deductions within 14 working days they are liable for damages of twice the amount of the deposit. Does that prevent the landlord from having any deductions at all?
  • i gave birth when i was 16 and the biological father was 20. he signed the birth certificate and left. the child is now 3 years old and he has never had any contact with him or paid child support. im trying to get him to sign away his rights can he do that and what papers would i need to do that? if i cannot would he be able to sign his rights over to my bf who has been taking care of him since birth. if that is what i have to do what papers would i need for that? also my bf is only 18 is he old enough to take guardianship of my son?
