QUESTIONS

  • After foreclosure involving a single family residence the new owner filed an unlawful detainer action against the tenants who had no rental agreement after serving them with a 90 day notice to quit. The tenants refuse to move and have not paid rent.They only had a month to month oral agreement with the former owner. One of the tenants claims that he is on parole and cannot be evicted. Is this a valid defense to the UD action?
  • My daughter's biological father passed away 6 months after she was born. My husband of 4 years and I are expecting a child and he'd like to legally adopt my daughter and change her last name from my maiden name to my married name. What's required for this process? Are their forms for it? Thank you!
  • My 84 year old mother is no longer capable of living alone due to several disabilities. She will need to break her lease. The property management company is threatening to hold her responsible for the 6 months remaining on the lease. Does the fact that she cannot live alone any longer allow her to break the lease with a smaller penalty?
  • can you have a felony modified to a lower class felony or misdemeanor???
  • Is it required by Arizona state law that a home must have a working cooling system if it is being rented? Also is it requires that a landlord must have a full septic tank pumped before renting a home out?
  • I have been convicted of a DUI, which occurred in 2010. This is my first DUI and I have never had problems with the law ever before, nor since. I have been given 180 days in jail, or go to class and pay fines of about $2500.00, and nine days in jail. I do not currently have a job, but will find work after the nine days in jail. I do not have any funds at this time. I suffer from panic attacks and I am a member of CODAC Behavioral Health. I want to attend classes and complete the program. How can I avoid the 180 days in jail, as I have no funds?
  • Can I be barred from handling my own affairs for any reason?
  • Six months into a twelve month lease my landlord sold the property. Now the new landlord is telling me that I must sign a new lease. Although she is not raising our rent, other provisions of the new lease are objectionable to me. Must I sign this new lease to preserve my status as a legal tenant, or must the new landlord accept the terms of my original lease?
  • If my family has temporary decision making over my children can they allow the children to travel out of the state without consenting me or without getting my permission?
  • How do I take care of my daughters estate, since she did not have a will, nor life insurance and was living under the poverty level?
