when i got raided everything was in a black school book bag. i respect his things just like he respect my things. so i was not aware of him having that in his book bag until the day i got raided. i didn't get arrest and my 2yr old son was not taken away and i assume its because the cops saw i wasn't aware of what was going on. the landlord has been trying to offer me money for 3yrs after he brought this building so he can rent for more, me being hispanic doesn't help. i feel discriminated..what is my next step or what can happen?

I am sorry to read about your difficulties.

You should not move out. The Landlord must then start a holdover case and serve you with the Summons and a copy of the complaint so that you can file an answer and tell the Court why you must not be evicted: you did not allow illegal activities in your unit; you did not know what your ex-boyfriend was up to, your two-year old son lives with you and he was not removed because the authorities do not think that you were involved. Otherwise, the child would have been removed. Click here for answer forms and instructions.

Goodluck with your case,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

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.

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