Gloria, 66 years old, contacted SeniorLAW Center after she took the brave step of filing for a Protection from Abuse order against her husband of 48 years. She was very frightened, having suffered physical abuse in later life.
Through Project S.A.F.E. (Stop Abuse and Financial Exploitation), our attorney represented Gloria in court, negotiating a Protection Order with defense counsel, which included her husband’s removal from the home. He had placed their home for sale; she faced being forced out. Her name had not been recorded on the deed, despite the fact that they had purchased the home together. We were able to negotiate a stop of the sale and enabled her to purchase her husband’s interest in the property. Our bilingual services allowed Gloria to understand her rights and legal options and to be empowered to make her own decisions.
With our help, Gloria avoided homelessness and attained safety. Your support helps thousands of brave seniors like Gloria each year!
