Q: 

Would Disabilities Act Apply? Other Ideas?--Q

A:  Candi, the laws regarding rental properties and mobile homes are different. Having never had to deal with mobile homes I must admit this is not my expertise. But as no one has responded to you I want to offer you something. You mentioned there are laws the county has that addresses your problem that are not being enforced. Sounds like that is one area of recourse to put pressure on who is to enforce the laws and make them follow through. If they refuse to, approach your elected officials for assistance. Also, it sounds like your landlord is trying to provide what assistance s/he can. Perhaps a second recourse is the two of you putting your heads together and coming up with a solution. You mentioned the closeness of...

Q: 

How should we handle this?

A:  Let's see. In order to protect your son, a man who has threatened you in the past with a baseball bat and who now owns a taser gun, you are willing to not involve the police and risk being charged, yourself, with possession of contraband and destroying evidence. You are also willing to risk your own physical harm should he become violent before the cops can arrive. He has already broken your rules. Call the cops and let them break down the closet door and collect evidence. I am not a lawyer. I suggest you consult with a lawyer before proceeding. You need to protect yourself both legally and physically. I agree, kick your son out. Call the police and have them remove the pot for you. I find it very unlikely you will be on the hook...

Q: 

Grounds for change in custody of child--Q

A:  I am not sure if this will help, but I hope I am able to post this here, I was searching for legal help, I have used all my savings and am broke now because my niece went against me in court and she had a free attorney, so, as I searched I came across this website... ooops, it will not let me post the site, so please try the search for probono If I could list the site I would. Bless You and Good Luck. Can you or other family help dad find the funds for an attorney? If he takes it to court, he will need proof of abuse. Is he able to take the boy to a doctor to be checked out/hear his complaints? If not, have the boy talk to his school''s guidance counsellor. He/she is mandated to report abuse. So are doctors. And...

Q: 

$160k legal contract - undue influence?

A:  You need a business law attorney to look at the contract to see whether it is breakable or not. Does this contract include a stipulation/agreement as to what his fees/hourly rate is and what he will be charging if he continues to represent you? Has the IRS not even told you what your tax liability is? Any indication of why it is taking so long for them to meet with you? Any proof/documentation/letters that this attorney has even contacted the IRS on your behalf to get things going? I somehow don''t feel that this attorney is being completely honest with you. It''s hard for me to understand why the IRS would be "pissed off with you", as he says, if they know beforehand that you are...

Q: 

desperate father needs help--Q

A:  You need to see an attorney and file for custody. also there should be a hearing on the RO, it sounds like that can easily be dropped. If I were you, avoid allowing mom in the house in the future. It''s time to get a full time job and get some income. You can call around and see if any attorney can help you, or go down to the family court and see if they have a law library/family court fascilitator that can point you in the right direction. Do whatever possible to retain counsel as if tyou wife leaves the state, she must meet the residency/jurisdiction requirements before she files. If you file in your state, that gives you the upper hand. Act now. She is claiming verbal abuse...

Q: 

please I need help

A:  I would suggest you start by calling your local women's shelter. They have many resources available to you and can help you get started taking care of things for yourself and your children. Legal Aid is also an option for you. You can find a listing for them in your local phone book. "what i need from you is if you can help me find a lawyers how not going to charge me nothing for the divorce ...." We can't do that. Contact local legal aid society. "... if is any way i can get my car back...." You're free to seek it in the divorce. "... if i need to go back to my country , that is any way I can take her with me?" We can't guess from here. You need to talk with a local

Q: 

One Big Mess

A:  You don't HAVE to, but it's a really good idea and honestly, something that should have been done long ago. Was he ever declared the kid's legal father? Of course, he's never paid a dime of child support either, huh? Consult an attorney first thing Monday morning. If you can't afford one, the child support enforcement office in your county can assist with getting an order of paternity and child support but you'd have to handle the custody/visitation matter on your own. Hi, I would suggest you go to the courthouse and file for custody of your daughter. This is for everyone's protection, but especially if you have any idea that he might keep her after her visitation this summer. If you...

Q: 

My atty.

A:  You should sent him a letter, certified, return receipt demanding a status of your case.  If he fails to do so, then you should hire a different lawyer. You need to start looking now as trial may be rapidly approaching and you do not want to get caught short. You can also file a complaint with the bar association, however I would not suggest that until you get a new attorney....

Q: 

How do I petition the court for review of my case? Arkansas

A:  How long has it been since legal paternity was established? When I first signed the petition for a DNA test was in 2004. But within the thirty days they gave me after I signed it, I went to jail. Because If I didn''t pay 180 dollars in 30 days, they would make me the father by default. How can I get a test still?? When I first signed the petition for a DNA test was in 2004.

Ex spouse wanting to relocate--Q

A:  Get yourself an attorney. Block this move. You have EVERY right to prevent your children from being relocated. Do NOT agree to this! Yes I have a apointment tomorow to do so. I have heard that it is a major deal to move the children away from the other parent. That in Washington it has gone to the supreme court and the children were ordered to stay as it would be a major change and shock to them. That the only way to do so is by a consenting parents ok.
