Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

If she can't afford the rent or isn't paying the full amount, you can give her a 3 day written notice to pay or vacate and then evict through the courts if she doesn't pay in full within that 3 days.

.

Her husband's health problems, while unfortunate, do not give her a legal excuse to not pay the rent.

.

.

thanks

Barrister

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
