QUESTIONS

  • I filed my divorce and sole custody paperwork through pima county courts because I was living there. Since then, both me and my ex-husband have moved out of state, and planning to move again, but my son, now 13, wants to live with his father until he is 18. What easiest way to modify the custody order to give sole custody to my ex-husband?
  • Can I withhold my rent from my landlord if there is mold in my trailer? I noticed there was mold growing around my sons cooler in his room (a/c unit) , I notified the landlord and told him about it and he promised he would send someone on that money (it’s been 3 weeks now). My son is 9 and has to sleep in the living room because of this problem , I also recently had a baby(she’s 6 months) and would hate for her to get sick from this. What legal action can I take? Also before we moved in we were promised that they would switch out the old bathtub for a new one and new flooring but nothing.
  • My son was married for 10 years. She always wanted to be the one bringing in all the money. My son was given an allowance. She makes close to 60,000 a year and basically told my son to get a job the last year. He couldn't find one and she decided to ask him to leave. He left with just some stuff and nothing else. Do you think he would be able to get alimony at least for awhile? No children. He is 29 and will be looking for a job now obviously, but he was left with nothing. Ty for any advice in advance
  • my husband and i are married,my parents are threatening me with a law suit for visitation when i have never withheld it before. i have been threatened by my brother who lives with them and dont want her alone with them what are my legal rights in arizona
  • Can landlords evict for no reason?
  • I was a stay-at-home mom for the majority of my marriage. During that time I accrued some student loans. In our separation agreement we each agreed to pay half of that, and any other, debt. A lawyer I spoke with stated that I am eligible for alimony (we were married 9 years and I stayed home for 6 of them), but my spouse takes great exception to this. He believes that since I did not contribute, monetarily, I should not be entitled to alimony. What should my expectations be?
  • I'm trying to assist seniors in a mobile park that are being abused by a park manager in one way or another. An 85 yr man got a 24 hr notice to move out due to his caregiver. The notice was hand written and delivered to him by managers husband. Another senior lady was sold a home that had no gas meter and now she cant use stove to cook and has no hot water for bathing. A 61 yr old man was chased down street by managers husband and assaulted. He did go to court and get a restraining order however the park turned around and got one on him which overturned his. Who can help these seniors. Help !
  • Do I need a sole custody order for my son if he lives with me, I take care of him, his "sperm donor" has never really been there, has verbally acknowledged that he's his but wants a Dna test for peace of mind (I don't want a dna test cuz it's against my religious beliefs), he has no father listed on the birth certificate, do I still need an order? Can he take my son away from me even tho he can't take care of him?
  • My apt. was flooded by the septic, raw sewage came out in my 2 bathrooms shower/tub. carpets soaked. I was not home at time, my children had noticed the problem, the neighbor contacted the management,her apt. was also flooded; when I arrived home and called it was after office hours; I contacted the build. maint. I told them we are not staying, we needed to be placed elsewhere, he talked with management, they gave us a 1 bdrm apt. myself and mother are both disabled. Is this not biohazard?? toxic? shouldnt the carpets be replaced? WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS?
  • After living at our current Apartment for well over a year I was offered employment by the Property Manager. I accepted the FT employment began working for the same company that I rent from. As an employee I received a discounted rent then what is stated on my current and active lease. After stating concerns regarding Fair Housing laws not being followed to the Property Manager I was terminated on a false accusation of theft. In my Letter of Termination it states I have less then 7 days to vacate the property as it is a benefit of employment. I lived here before I worked here can she do this?
