to call the police and say I'm threatening her. I've have never threatened or laid a hand on her in my life. I lived with her for the past 52 years. I'm 52 and she's 89. She's verbally abused me and other relatives her whole life. She even hit her own mother. I will stand up for myself and tell her off, but I'm not a violent person. She did say she'd love to hit me. If she calls the police they are going to believe her. What should I do? I've been a good daughter to her, but I can't take the verbal abuse.
JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?
Customer: Indiana. The threat to call the police just happened today.
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No. This is the first time the situation escalated to this level. Also, I don't have much money for an attorney. I work part time and I'm on Medicaid and food stamps.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: My sister and my daughter know what my mom is like.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
