Free legal assistance for seniors!

Location: Florida, Miami  |  Law type: financial services Commented 5x

Older people are well aware that they are an easy target for various frauds, although some of them do not realize it. In addition to children and disabled people, seniors, too, are often victims of financial fraud and are often easily lured into the networks of manipulators that stop at nothing. Even a young person may become a victim of dishonest practices, let alone a senior or a retired person. We run a free Legal Advice Center for seniors, where you can post any legal query (in compliance with the rules) related to the laws of any state of the USA. In the event of an urgent problem, free legal assistance (hotline) may be used in the area of your residence. These assistance programs are usually available in every US state and their basic counseling services are provided free of charge. Note: based on a phone call with an operator of such a legal clinic, a paid appointment with a consultant or a lawyer may be recommended to you. If you want to be sure that you, as a senior, will not pay for legal assistance, use the services of one of the consulting websites or our free services – you can post your question right now!

What should you watch out for?

This concerns not only seniors and insecure citizens. Potential risks may lie in buying gifts and gift vouchers using credit cards in shops, but also online payments made through the Internet can be a risk. Understandably, this problem culminates during the holiday season, especially around Christmas time. The best one can do is to avoid these transactions and the risks involved. If you think that there has been a breach of customer (civil) rights that may result in legal issues, then it is time to do something about it. There are projects such as "Smart Money Advice", "Free Advice Centers for Immigrants", "Consumer Law Project for Elders (CLPE)" and other institutions that are ready to assist both seniors and all citizens who are in a debt trap and are not able to manage the situation on their own.

In Forth Worth area, Tarrant County, Texas

My husband and my Social Security amounts to $2820 per month. My husband has dementia and has been placed a Memory Care home (4 months ago).

The Home gets his full net Social security, $1660. And I have to continue to pay life insurance on him, per agreement with the home, in the amount of $452.46 per month. That leaves me $708 to live on. I have no other income. Very little savings and no house or car.  

I still have to pay his prescription co-pays, about $45 per month, and my doctors and meds, about $75 per month. Now, I'm down to $588 per month. 

I have a credit card with Bank of America, Visa, with a balance of $8,770. I had been paying it down from $17K, due to having foundation repair on our former home damaged by an earthquake. I negotiated with them a year or so ago and closed the account with the agreement that they would only charge me 2% interest, and that my payments would be $210 per month. I can no longer make that payment (next is due January 10, 2021). 

Can you help me get released from this debt?
