QUESTIONS

  • My teenage daughter and I were both arrest for domestic violence and both of us were prosecuted. Same case yet we were both identified as defendants which very effectively eliminated any accountability especially by the courts to address "Victim's Rights" at all. The words "dominate aggressor" does not exist , at least not in the statues in AZ. So my question is: How do the courts justify this? Is this ethical? Every justification so far has been absolutely absurd. Have you thought this through at all? Obviously: no victim, double fees, more income, more DV programs as Dual arrests increase
  • my daughter 16 was involved in a bad car accident the 18 yr old driver had no insurance, a lawyer told me we could not sue the individual or we would loose the uninsured claim on my own insurance. He almost killed my daughter: and we have thousands in medical bills, and we don't even know what punishment he recieved my coverage i had will not pay all the bills what about my daughters pain and suffering? she has permanent injuries she will have for life. why do i have to pay for his mistake? she is the victim why are we not being notified about any court proceedings? who do i need to contact?
  • My judgement was set aside in 2012. How come I am not able to pass a background check when I am applying for work? What other steps can I take to close my judgement?
  • I never married the father of my daughter. Will he be able to take custody of my daughter. He is a convicted felon and currently does not have a place to live. I pay for her insurance, preschool, clothes and food. I want to get sole custody. Is it possible.
  • I voluntarily turned in a car that i could not longer afford back to the finance company,now 4 years later, I found out that they sold the car at auction for only $50.00, far below the value and said hey are goind to sue me for the unpaid balance plus intrest, can they do that?
  • I have 2 felony charges from 3 years ago in Phx, Az. I now reside and work in CA. I was advised by the judge that based on my income a court appointed attorney is not an option. Because the matter is an Az matter but i reside in Ca do i seek representation from ca or az?

  • I have been trying to go through the Department of Children's Services to get my ex wife (who lives in Alabama) to pay child support for almost 3 years now. Is there anything I can do through the legal system to finally get this resolved? Three years is an awfully long time to get a mother to pay child support when it took her a matter of weeks to get the court to issue an income withholding order on me when she was the custodial parent.
  • Does ahcccs provide counseling services for minor children? I feel that my children are having a difficult time with their father being incarcerated.
