QUESTIONS

  • What is the landlords responsibility when black mold is found in their property and is causing the tenants to get sick?
  • My husband and I separated after my daughter was born and we then got divorced. She has his last name and I would like to change it before she starts school. It has been almost 5 years since he has seen her. I never got an original copy of her birth certificate. Do I still need to file through the courts for a name change?
  • I was convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence charge and have finished all of my sentencing and have had my charges set aside. What else must I do to restore my gun rights?
  • my grandkids have been left with me since December 25 which mom is not helping me at all and wont sign power of attorney for me. what can I do to get custody without going thru CPS?
  • Landlord gave permission for me to move out early and help find another tenant. Its been almost 2 months and no one has been approved. Landlord has changed rent price multiple times in ad and doesn't follow up with possible applicants. Plus repairs being done to place means I haven't lived at property all of June. Can I just move on and not worry about paying rent and get my deposit back? My lease is through Dec. 2016, but my landlord doesn't seem to be very quick on finding a new tenant or making sure repairs are done in a timely manner. Repairs are on the chiller system and bathroom as well.
  • One of my creditors has chosen to sue me to collect a debt. Supposedly a judgement was issued against me, but the paperwork was so confusing, I could not understand it. I do not own a home or a car and my only income is Social Security. The letter from the agency selected by the credit card company says there are various means they can use to collect. My question is, what CAN they do to me? A call to the agency got me nowhere. I am also the sole caregiver for my handicapped mother.
  • Is rent late if mailed on due date and lanlords live in another state
  • Me and my ex wife have shared custody of our six year old daughter for the past 5 and half years. My ex wife now wants to move from chandler to queen creek, changing my daughters school to the queen creek area. I stated this was not fair because my drive would increase to 15 extra miles per trip, adding more drive time during my visitation days. Is this a fair assumption on my part? If we go to court what should I expect from a judge's descision?
  • I recently read the legal eagle by atty mark Sullivan, its for military and spouse, family divorces. He says to see a military legal assistance atty.could you locate one close to Yavapai county?
  • I moved into an apartment in April and had specifically asked the manager if they had bed bugs and he said no..I asked about roaches he said a few here and there well both myself and neighbor have them she is more infested than I am but I'm a cardiac patient on blood thinners with other health issues is it the landlord responsible to provide the extermination services
