My girlfriend recently had a heart attack & fell hitting her

My girlfriend recently had a heart attack & fell hitting her head on the way down. She has brain troubles now & her physician has advised her that she will not be able to fly, drive or walk stairs. She is having to use a walker now along with nurse assistance just to get out of bed. She lives in Los Angeles & has not been sent home yet. She will be staying with her Mom for quite awhile. I am looking for advice on how to get her out of her condo lease due to medical condition. The condo is not wheelchair accessible & has many stairs just to get to the front door & then to even get to the bathroom & bedroom. I also would like to know what can be done to help her get any kind of financial assistance sine she was an independent contractor for the LA schools but did not have insurance through them.

I just moved in Dec 15 into a new townhome. I was told by the realtor that it is a pretty good neighborhood. While living there, my garage door kept being open by someone and I didn't know how. The next day, which was yesterday, someone broke into my garage with no forced entry, and stole my things. I received a police report. Now, he tried opening it again. I am not safe in the neighborhood ebcause I found out it was my neighbor. I have not been there for a month yet.

I was wondering if I could break a lease to a house in NC. I

I was wondering if I could break a lease to a house in NC. I have someone trying to break into my home and is stalking me. 4 days ago my gate to my yard was mysteriously left open. The next night when I was gone for work my window by my Christmas tree was broken. But nothing was stolen. My neighbor told me after that that someone in the neighborhood told him they were going to break into my home and was asking a lot of questions about me and talked about how pretty I was, but my neighbor didn't take him seriously. He also saw him knock on my door for hours while I was away. I don't feel safe here. I'm a female and I live alone and I just want to move to a safer area.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NCJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I reported a police report the night my window was broken and told them the night before my gate was left open. I don't know if I should or can report what my neighbor said about the person.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't know the name of the person. My neighbor said he would find out a name but I don't know if he actually will or not. I think that should be it all though. Thank you.
