Q. In AZ, after you pay a full retainer to an attorney, how long do they have to make/file an Entry of Appearance ?
A: I don't think there is a set deadline, but customarily, most attorneys file a Notice of Appearance within a day or two of being hired.
Q. My mom has dementia for the past year. Her husband cheated over a decade ago and is. Is trying to kick her out. She pay
A: This is really a question for an attorney who handles adult guardianships or elder law. It probably needs to be answered by an attorney in Michigan. If the property is in Michigan, and if both spouses are in MIchigan, then you'll need to speak to a Michigan-licensed attorney about this. As I am only licensed in Arizona, I can't even advise you on this.
Q. In az a minor 16 or older may marry someone that is no older then 3 yrs older then you would 3yrs 1 month be okay or no
A: I agree with what Mr. Branum wrote. Three years is three years. It's not three years and a day. The line was drawn at three years.
