I lived with my...

I lived with my boyfriend &his parents when his mom had a stroke, I was "hired" by his dad to be her care giver, I wad payed 100.00 a week. Since then she has passed, they sold the house, my boyfriend &. his father both offered me money to help me because I wanted to go on my own, now my ex is won't give me my money he basically said if I'm not with him I get nothing. His father won't answer my calls or text messages. I feel they for one cheated me out under payed I did everything 24/7 I was lived there for about 15years. Together with my ex since 1998. And also his dad tried kissing me & I'd catch his watching me, I was a emotional wreak, I was treated like I didn't matter. What can I do to get my money they promised me, I have nothing. He payed me cash& for the last 6 months of living there he cut my pay to $40.00, a week because they had to roof done. Can you help me please! I'm lost.

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

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
