QUESTIONS

  • My dad died in 2008 my sister who is autistic and my brother were left with my grandmother she has guardianship of both of them now but she is unfit to take care of them she can't walk and needs a nurse how can I take custody of my brother and sister my brother is 15 years old and my sister is 19 and autistic my grandmother doesn't let me take them anywhere
  • i was looking up a justice court criminal case on the Arizonas judicial branch website, which is related to a legal situation that that I am involved in at the present time. I noticed that in the disposition section of the case it states 'comp dismissed by cty atty'. The reason that I ask my question is I thought that only a judge can dismiss a case, in a justice court. I would appreciate it if someone could give me as much information concerning my question as possible.My question is can a county attorney dismiss a criminal case, which is in a local justice court?
  • where I do I take domestic violence classes in Prescott Arizona ???and how much do they cost
  • 4 years ago I had a child and the father has never been involved or even tried to contact us. I have been with the same man since my child was born and he wants to adopt! Do I have to contact the birth father to have him relinquish his rights?
  • do you help in criminal law i see that on the website you do but wwhen i went thru the interview process online i was told that you can not help.. please have been looking and asking for help everywhere
  • if im living with my dad and mymom re filed child support and using it as her money for her doings is illegal correct??
  • My mother let her ex daughter-in-law stay in a rental she owns, they had a verbal agreement that it was only for a few weeks until she found a place to live. She is still there months later, has not paid any rent and will not leave. How do we evict her?
  • Right before I touched my teeth, I talked to the doctor and asked about my dental insurance coverage. The doctor got hold of the insurance and asked about the coverage himself. He was then told that all fillings and the dental procedures are covered 100% with no exceptions. Therefore, I should be paying nothing. I called my insurance, and was told that somehow some downgrades have been applied to the plan, and it's now my responsibility to pay the rest of the outstanding balances.
  • I had a drop in my pay, and now, after my Child Support Payments, my take home pay is less than 900 dollars a month. Isn't there a limit on how much money they can take for my child support if it puts me below a reasonable standard of living? I can't pay my basic living expenses, and I don't know what to do.
  • I understand there is a 48-hr required notice for showing a property occupied with tenants. If the tenant agrees says it is ok, is it ok to ask for an earlier showing, as long as I inform them that they are not obligated to allow it that early? Or would they still have legal recourse if they agree and is shown with less than 48 hr notice?
