My fiance is on the brink of losing his family home, that would render me, him and his 15 year old son homeless.
Richard, my fiance, had no income because of mental disability. He relied on disability income every month, while he took care of his grandmother, until November 2017 when his grandmother passed away. Overwhelmed with what he needed to do after her death, he did not know that he had received letters from SSA asking him to attend doctor appointments they had scheduled in order to continue SSDI payments. 5 months after she passed away they discontinued his disability income. At the same time, he, his child, and any other occupant, received notice to vacate the home his grandmother had purchased in 1956. It has been an on-going battle, which is seeming to come to an end. We are unable to pay $1,000/month as rent and bond for an Unlawful Detainer Case, pending his appeal of an order in Probate Court.
Richard opposed, as a pro per indigent litigant, a petition filed by the Trustee of his grandmother's 1990 Trust (2005 Amendment), his two half siblings and their lawyer, with a J.D. in Law of 40 years, in Probate Court. The judge denied motions, pleadings, and oral arguments, before and during trial, to continue the trial for more time for Richard to obtain legal counsel. I ended up taking that role; but not during trial; I am not a lawyer or paralegal and have no certificate or degree.
The Petition was filed in July 2018 and we received notice of a hearing set for October 16, 2018 on September 9. 2018.
