  • The apartment I just rented has mold. Is the landlord responsible to clean out the mold.
  • Can I adopt my spouse’s children if I am a convicted felon?  And what is an expedited case plan with child protective services mean?

  • I divorced in Seattle 11 years ago and my ex moved down to Phoenix with my son and I moved down here 5 years ago. He is 13 now and I have always paid child support but I have no record of it, as we did not go through the courts for this. I am getting married in a few months and want to have something signed or some document stating that I have paid child support for the last 13 years and something that shows I continue to pay directly to her every month. Is there something like that here in AZ that will protect me from her stating I never paid?
