QUESTIONS

  • I want to hyphenate my daughter's last name.She currently has her biological father's last name,who has nothing to do with her.I have remarried and want to give her mine and my husband's last name,who is the only father she knows.Can I do that? And since I am not removing my ex's last name,do I still need his consent?
  • I have a leak in a water pipe and my carpet is soaked and there is a musty smell that I'm afraid could be mold. The manager says I have to wait until the owner has the money to get it fixed. Can I legally hire a plumber and give the bill to my landlord or deduct the cost from my rent?
  • My landlord placed an immediate eviction notice on my door. Is it possible to immediately evicte someone without going to court?
  • I need to find a free law library so I can do some research on a civil suit. Does anyone know where I can find a free law library?
  • My ex husband has not been paying childsupport since march 2009 due to losing his job. How can I get him to pay back childsupport-or file for it. and if i dont know my Atlas number who can I call to get it
  • What can I do when my ex girlfriend who is pregnant isn't going to tell me when and where our baby is going to be born?
  • I was recently laid off work as a biomedical technican, allegedly for "reduction in force" needs. I suspect that my selection for dismissal was primarily based on my age (44yo), as a recently highed 22yo female technician was retained despite having almost no experience and still being trained. I can't afford high lawyer consult fees so what can I do to determine if I have a valid claim?
  • Me and my husband separated almost 4 years ago but not signed official separation agreement and if I buy real estate now with money send from my sister,will it be considered as my separate property or community property? Thank You
  • My son was terminated from his job for "reporting late to work". He was never given any verbal warning about the possibility of being fired until the day it happened. There were other workers at his place of employment who had, in the past, not shown up for work at all without even calling the employer and are still employed. In you oppinion is he eligible for unemployment compensation?
  • A California court awarded me full legal and physical custody of my daughter after her father hit her. He has been convicted of domestic violence, drug and misc criminal charges. He is supposedly "clean" now and court ordered that he can call my daughter once per week. This is the extent of their relationship. I currently live in Arizona and want to be sure that if something were to happen to me, my sister would have guardianship. My daughter is now 13, does not want to live with him and I strongly believe it is not in her best interest to live with him. She has very close relationship with my sister and my sister would provide stability. Can I "transfer" my custodial rights to my sister and direct that custody not go to my ex or his family in a will?
