QUESTIONS

  • Hi I recently moved into a rental home and things are continuously going wrong. We went without A/C for 4 days before it was fixed, the electrical sockets in the bathroom go on and off continuously on their own for days at a time and we have a toilet that leaks. At what point can we terminate a lease and still get our security deposit back? The landlord expects these things to be fixed by us first then her then a professional. I know nothing about electrical things so now its her turn to look before a professional each time takes days-weeks to fix.
  • Please explain what the alpha designators mean in Case Numbers. Example:J-1102-CR-200500311. They begin with J-,M-,etc. Thank you.
  • I have sole custody of my daughter. A person, I lived with at one time, received in locus parentis rights and received parenting time with my child. Does this person have to get my permission to vacation out of state with my child or can she take the child anywhere she wants without my permission?
  • When will I be eligible for set aside
  • Can I legally get out of my lease if I have had no  hot water for two months and has not been fixed
  • I have a stipulated judgment on child support arrears. DCSE continues every month to try and garnish my accounts and take my taxes. I am and have always been current on the payments stipulated in the judgment. How can they take action when I am not in arrears on the stipulation?
  • My husband and I have been married for 19 years. Common Law for 4 years and 14 years Legally Married (State of NM). We have been separated for 3 months, if I decided to divorce my husband my reason is "Adultery". We have a State Marriage Licence and we married in Navajo Nation Court. Do I file with the State of New Mexico or Navajo Nation. We have 2 children therefore child support will be filed. And can I charge my husband and his companion with "Adultery"?
  • I live in a Mobile Home Park. I got a sink hole behind my house after a really bad storm. The water pools between the houses and when it drained, you can see the trail of debri that flowed to the back of my house where much of the water washed out the soil and left a big sink hole around my cement slab that my AC sits on. I only rent the lot. Does the park need to fix this problem or am I suppose to fix a new sink hole every time we get a big rain storm?
  • My ex husband has full custody of our 4 children and he is keeping them from me. Not allowing me to have any contact with them. The children have written me asking for a response but I am unable to write back because their father will not give me a return address. Is what he doing illegal? And if so what steps do I need to take in order to see and speak to my children?
  • My wife passed away close to 4 years ago after 35 years of marriage. Any $ she had or we both had (including IRA's) transferred to my name. If I get married again, are the dollars (mainly in my IRA) mine alone or would they become "ours"?
