    Just to clarify... you mean that when you call that hospital your information comes up, not that anyone can go on the net and find out your information, correct?

  • Is it appropriate to discuss college tuition costs with your child who will be entering their first year of college.

    Daniel’s Answer

    This doesn't seem to be a legal question... just a parenting one. You and your ex seem to have differing opinions about the importance of cost in the equation.

  • I need to get deposit money back from a landlord

    We have receipts, emails, photos and time line available to explain and help support our side. We believe he owes us about $4500. We would go to small claims court but we know he will have representation and we are looking for help as well.

    Has LL informed you that he is keeping your money? How long has it been? Has he provided you with a breakdown of costs?

  • I got a speeding ticket near buffalo NY the other day on I90. I was going 80 but the cop gave me a ticket for 75.

    It was snowing pretty bad, I was passing a line of cars and apparently one of them was a cop. He pulled me over and instantly started yelling at me that I don't respect the law and that I shouldn't pass a cop. I was focused on the road because of ...

    Daniel’s Answer

    There's no way to answer your question for sure... but if the facts are that you were going 80, during a storm, while passing a police cruiser... you need something more than "I was really going *faster* than he wrote the ticket for."

    In court judges/magistrates will often drop ticket amounts, if you are nice to the officer (and the judge) and haven't caused any problems - and especially if you are a first time offender - but whether it's up to you to get up there is up to you. If you wish to fight it, consult a local attorney up there.

    Daniel’s Answer

    Well there must be a lease agreement with somebody, whether it's you or him. It just may not be in writing. Who is it that the LL agreed to lease the unit to?

    Beyond that, why are you asking questions the LL should be asking? Are you still in the unit? Is the LL threatening to come after you?

    Daniel’s Answer

    As the out-of-state attorneys have said, there is an administrative appeals process for tax valuations. Unfortunately, you may have just missed the appeals application date for this year (2/20). I've attached a link to this reply that goes to the assessors site. You can call them and ask for more information, it just might be a while before you get an actual hearing. Appealing your tax basis is the first step, and the most important, going forward.

    Second is trying to get your old taxes back, if you can, and if the assessor agrees with a lower property value. There will be a limit to how far back you can go. Talk to a local attorney about this.

    Those are not mutually exclusive options... but speak to local attorneys and they can help advise when it comes to payments.

    This is a very difficult thing to do. You need to talk to an Arizona attorney that handles child custody cases immediately.
