QUESTIONS

  • how long can i stay in a rental home if i do not pay rent. and also how long before i will be evicted if i do not pay rent.
  • I am currently working for a company, but I want to get a better job.I received a call from one place that would have given me more money, allowed me to go to school, and it even offered medical benefits, which I really need since I currently have none.I was supposed to start the following Tuesday, but unfortunatley my current boss did not want me to go and called the place I was pursuing and said some unappropriate things about me.What can I do
  • does the mom have all the rights to the child
  • Do I have a case if I have been discrinated against and denied a job due to a disability?
  • Can a debt collector have you served at your place of employment? I have not had any contact with the creditor, collection agency, or debt collecting attorney.
  • For the last 8 years I have been paying my landlord cash. I did fall a little behind and was making payments. I never kept track and now he says I am 6 months behind and gives a hand written payment sheet for the last 2 years. He wants about $7000.00 he never gives me receipts and wants cash. I have had to go buy all new appliances because when something breaks down he repairs them and they don't last. There is also a lot of problems (unsafe) we have told him about and he does not repair. Can he legally evict us or take us to court.
  • i paid off my lease in full and i only stayed 6 months and paid a fee and gave full 60 days notice. should i get the rest of the rent that i paid back?
  • So, for the first year of my son's life, I lived with my mother while raising my son.Now he's 2 and he has only lived with me... and the father is not on the birth certificate.The fathers parents see my son when I can bring him... I only have Sunday and Monday off and my son has had a consistent routine with days at daycare, coming home to eat etc... Apparently I voiced my concern that I would like to go to church with my son for his firsttime with them and the grandparent stated he would go file for rights to have whatever time he wanted with my son including over weekends...Is that true?
  • I locked myself out of my apartment and was denied entry by management for 3 1/2 hours. Is this legal? I asked to be let back in and the guy (who has a key) told me it wasn't his job to let me back in.
  • My babies dad failed to contact the court within the 21 day requirement and i was told to fill out the Application and Affidavit For Default and Entry Of Default. I am having some trouble filling it out. Is there a Number i can Call to help me fill it out?
