16 Questions Answered
- Q. Who do i contact if i think someone is trying to committ fraud
- A: This depends on what you are referring to as fraud. The Arizona Attorney Generals Office handles certain types of misrepresentation. There website is provided here: https://www.azag.gov/complaints There is civil non-criminal fraud in which case the party that is wronged would need to contact an attorney. There are other types that may involve contact to your local police, county attorney, or other government agency. It all depends on what you are referring to when you say they are trying to commit fraud.
- Q. I found some certificate of shares when my grandmother passed away, is there anything I can do w/them?
- A: The answer to this depends on several factors. First is whether the certificates are currently even valid. If they are then it will depend on the terms of your grandmother's will, or who would've received the shares in intestacy. There may even be other instruments like a Trust that direct what is to be done with the certificates.
- Q. How do I find out the status of a bankruptcy filing?
- A: You can actually view them at the public access computers at the clerk's office if that's convenient. You can also go online to the Public Access to Court Electronic Records site: http://pacer.uscourts.gov and lookup the information, or you can call 1-866-222-8029. Information about the McVIS phone number I provided is available here http://www.azb.uscourts.gov/default.aspx?PID=87.
- Q. If you have to register as a sex offender in the US and move to another country does it automatically transfer
- A: While the U.S. is trying to track sex offenders internationally, at this time that legislation has not gone into effect. Moreover, many countries do not even have sex offender registries, for those that do then you would need to consult with their registry requirement laws.
- Q. How do I find my husband's court case information?
- A: The following is the link to lookup case information for a criminal case in Arizona Superior Court. http://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/docket/CriminalCourtCases/Index.asp
- Q. Do I need special licensing to open a non-profit sober-living facility?
- A: The requirements will actually depend on the city you live in, as you will have to comply with zoning requirements and/or any special required licensing. As a non-profit you will also need to comply with IRS regulations.
- Q. If an individual appoints multiple medical powers of attorney, must they all agree on decisions? Who presides?
- A: This is going to depend on how the multiple individuals are appointed. If they are appointed in a single power of attorney, and there is no direction as to whose decision will overrule the others then it will likely go to court. If there are conflicting documents appointing the power of attorney it is most likely the most recent in time will govern, unless there is language to the contrary. See A.R.S. 36-2309 and A.R.S. 36-3221 through 36-3223. Unless there is agreement most likely a court determination will be necessary.
- Q. Can i get the money d.o.c took from me from "room and board?"
- A: No, Arizona law permits the DOC to charge prisoners. The laws permit the "room and board" charge and also a charge of up to $2 per month for utilities. Please see ARS 31-254 and ARS 31-239. Other states have similar laws, and at least 1 US Circuit Court has upheld the constitutionality of these statutes.
- Q. Can a guardian of an adult give permission for forced psychiatric medication
- A: In general yes, because under ARS 14-5312 a guardian of an incapacitated person has the same general authority that a parent would have over their unemancipated minor child. The guardian is required to act in their ward's best interest.
