I have a friend who is very poor facing eviction on June 1. She has just been instructed to leave her rental. No court action has been taken by the landlord, only told her to vacate today. She has an eight year old daughter. Can you help her and do so pro bono?
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: Norfolk VA. Also, where are you located?
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Not to my knowledge. The lady says no, but she is legally ignorant and has no copy of her lease
. She asked for a copy several weeks back to show Salvation Army for money for utilities bills, but landlord wouldn't bring it.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: She just had foot surgery and hasn't been able to work. She has two adult children who have jobs, but haven't been paid in about 4 weeks. Previously, they would pay half the rent every 2 weeks
