Answer: You should contact an attorney. If you are a low-income person, you may be eligible for free legal services from your regional legal aid agency, which, depending on where you live, is either Community Legal Services (http://clsaz.org), Southern Arizona Legal Aid, Inc. (https://www.sazlegalaid.org), or DNA-People’s Legal Services (https://dnalegalservices.org).
