I am in need of legal assistance to file bankruptcy

2021-02-03 05:38:07

I own a condo. I have it rented who from November has not paid me any rents, has not signed a new lease and he is withholding my property. I sent him a notice letter asking him either to pay and sign the new lease and has not contacted me. He does not contact me at all, withholding my property taking advantage of the covid moratorium. Because I am paying two mortgages and I am a senior with low social security benefits, could you please help me out with the eviction and if i am entitled to financial assistance as a property owner?

Important Information

Legal Aid Funding
Legal aid professionals and organizations oftentimes receive government funding for taking on cases with those who cannot afford attorneys. For the most part, funding is limited so legal aid entities can only take on a limited amount of cases. Qualifications are often rigid.
