QUESTIONS

  • My son's father and his girlfriend had a domestic violence incident in his home where she broke glass, furniture, and physically assaulted him. The police came. My 5 year old son was in the home at the time. I would like to get a restraining order against her for my son. I don't want my son to be exposed to that again. She has also been harrassing me via hundreds of texts, phone calls, social media messages, etc. Do I have enough to file for a restraining order against her for my son? My concern is for my son's safety.
  • What is the amount of time a landlordnmust give on a "notice of entering"? I have received 2 of them in the last 3 months giving on a 24 hour notice
  • how long i have to wait to get the rental reservation deposit back, after the landlord denies my application
  • I have been divorced for over three years. I have primary physical custody of my children but share legal custody with my ex. We live in two different cities. My son is autistic. Can we legally register my son to attend school in the Tempe district even though he is only at his father's home in Tempe 30% of the time? Or do we need to revise the physical custody agreement in order to legally enroll him?
  • the agency responsible for enforcing laws that require both a child's parents to help support the child is:
  • I never received my son's birth certificate from his birth. We moved shortly after he was born and it never arrived in the mail. Now I have to pay for a copy when I never received the original. How do I get the original
  • Help! Domestic violence occurred. My husband left me unexpectedly. We have a daughter. I have no income, no car, no phone and now a lease that I can't pay, what are my resources?
  • Is there specific paper I need to move out of state after a divorce where I have received sole custody of the children
  • Is it legal to smoke in apartments with shared ventilation?
  • There is an eviction judgement against me and I am the owner of the mobile home which is too old to move. Is is legal for the court to grant me five days only after living here problem free for 22 years and have 3 kids?
