Customer Question
My family has been...

My family has been chatting with a young lady in her 20's for a while. Her Aunt lives with her, any way every time the Aunt get angry she punishes her by not giving her any food. Now she says she gets no food for a week. Isn't there something she can do ?? By the way the house is in this young ladies name,not the Aunt's

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

She lives in Aberdeen Wa.

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

Not yet. This young lady is very intemmadated by her Aunt . She doesn't know what she can do

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

As far as I know , the Aunt is not the legal guardian ! Not sure but I think she's on SSI.

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.
