QUESTIONS

  • Someone broke the front window of the house I am renting. I called the police and filed a report but the landlord says that she doesn't have to fix it because there haven't been any other windows in the neighborhood, so I must have been targeted. Shouldn't the landlord have to fix it?
  • I've been handling my divorce on my own. So far I've found all the forms online. Now I've run into a wall, I can't find where to download the forms, that will get me subpoenas, or tell me how/where to get em. If anyone can help with this, I'd be very grateful.
  • How long is a landlord's notice of intent to enter good for? My landlord routinely gives notice of intent to enter by saying that they will be starting inspections on a certain date for the entire apartment complex, but it may take weeks for them to enter any given apartment. Is this legal behavior, or must they be more specific? It's getting annoying not knowing whether or not they came, or thinking they already have and then someone barges in weeks later.
  • I divorced in Seattle 11 years ago and my ex moved down to Phoenix with my son and I moved down here 5 years ago. He is 13 now and I have always paid child support but I have no record of it, as we did not go through the courts for this. I am getting married in a few months and want to have something signed or some document stating that I have paid child support for the last 13 years and something that shows I continue to pay directly to her every month. Is there something like that here in AZ that will protect me from her stating I never paid?
  • im only 15 and my parents still legally own me and i need to move out but i dont know how to. i feel if i spend another day with them something bad is gonna happen to me. help?
  • My former employer is verbally abusive on a daily basis and creates an extremely hostile workplace. After tolerating this for 6 months, I finally gave him my 2 week notice. He proceeded to say 'No, I'll end this right here' asked me for my key and walked me out. I then filed for unemployment, which has since been denied. I'm sure he said I quit, which is not the case. This person also made advances to my 16 ear old daughter when she was at work with me over the summer. Do I have a claim? I'm having a hard time getting a response from local attorney's.
  • If you have only missed one day at work, Are you required to give your employer a doctors note? I thought you had to be absent for at least three days before a doctors note is required
  • I live in Missouri, I have been paying child support on my son faithfully, in fact, I have overpaid app $5000! Two ?'s, one-how do I go about filing a petition to end child support(was due to end May 31, 2011-recently found out I have to petition the court first), second-am I entitled to my overage to be repaid? My son is 18 and doesnt live with his mother anymore.
  • how much is a copy of my birth certificate by mail? since i live out of state and have to mail it in.
  • I'm renting a apt/condo in Casa Grande. My neighbors tree fell across her driveway and landed on my parked car in my driveway. Who pays for damages to my car? My car is still drivable and damage is mostly cosmetic.
