QUESTIONS

  • My brother has had his ex-wife stay with him for about 3 weeks, she was never on the lease of the apartment, pays no rent, has no mail going to the apartment, nor does she have any utility bills. She is becoming increasingly abusive and was only supposed to be temporary. Will he need to evict her or can he just have her removed for trespassing? My brother is the only one on the lease.
  • Good Afternoon, I'm a Senior at NAU and a retired Marine. I have an arrangement set for 9/5/2018, in Surprise AZ. This is a DUI charge that took place 5/2017. I blew a 0.00 but was instructed to give a urine sample. I want to take this case into veterans court in Flagstaff. I want this different venue because I live and go to school here in Flagstaff. How can I go by doing this? Thank you for your time.
  • If I voluntarily quit my job am I entitled to unemployment compensation?
  • My father (73) was diagnosed with lung cancer few months ago. I do not know how much time he has left. He owns a house in Mesa, and my sister lives with him. The house is under his name and he has a will that divides evrything he owns 50-50 between my sister and me. Now, when he passes away, can my sister still be in the house and assume mortgage payment? If my sister and I want to sell the house after my father's departure, can we do that? If so, how does that work?
  • I filed for simplified child support modification back in March. Per the guidline my ex had 20 days to request a hearing regarding the forms. She finally requested a hearing but she did it at 25 days. Will the court still grant her this or not because she did not do it in the designated time frame?
