Customer Question
My bi-polar daughter, age...

My bi-polar daughter, age 42, moved from one city to Indianapolis to start over. She had a job in Milwaukee but also cared for her dying grandmother. She moved when grandmother died, but needed a co-signer on her apartment until she was fully employed. She had a 3 month job through an agencies, but now is again without work, although she swears she will be working before her lease is up April 1st. Because of her mental problems, I’m not sure of this and would like to get off the lease ASAP so as not to empty my pockets or ruin my perfect credit. How and when do I begin this process and still hope she has a roof over her head?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

Indiana, Indianapolis, Marion County.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

As in....?

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

Oh, no....there is only a lease signed by both of us, and they did accept her pay stubs from her job in Milwaukee.

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.
