Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I am so sorry to hear about your wife's condition. Unfortunately, most states' laws do not give rise to a legal action against parents or siblings for being hurtful and causing us emotional problems. If there is physical abuse, you might have a claim, but it would have to be proven. There is also a time limit after each incident when you can bring such claims. The law should provide some sort of recourse for people who are emotionally abused by their families, but presently I am not aware of any. I hate to be the bearer of bad news and admire you for trying think of solutions. You need to see if she qualifies for social security disability or medicaid to help with the care costs.
