Customer Question
HUSBAND ABANDONED RESIDENCE AND...

HUSBAND ABANDONED RESIDENCE AND MOVED TO MEXICO AFTER 12 YEARS OF MARRIAGE, DOES NOT SEND ANY MONEY FOR RENT EVEN THOUGH I HAVE HIS ADDRESS. HE CLAIMS HE MOVED BECAUSE HE DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY FROM HIS SOCIAL SECURITY TO PAY ANY PART OF MY RENT. HE SENDS WHEN HE CAN $300 FOR LOAN TO BANK THAT WAS FOR HIM UNDER MY NAME.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

LOS ANGELES, and now i moved to Laguna Woods because I had to move for lack of him paying rent for 3 months. I have sold my wedding ring and earrings and am living off that for now. Does he not have any obligations/

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I have contacted social security here, nothing has been done. I saw a lawyer and she claims since I have no money to forget it

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Do I have any legal rights to him paying some part of this rent
