Chalmette, LA asked in Elder Law, Family Law, Domestic Violence and Real Estate Law for Louisiana

Q: My parents co-own a homer in Louisiana for five years..I have lived in that home

since it was purchased. What are my legal rights...can I be evicted from the home.? I am being threatened to be evicted by my mother's husband. He is physically and emotionally abusive to both of us what are our rights for protection against him.. My mom is her 80s and is currently a home bound hospital bed Home Health patient.

No I have not reported him to the APS or the police to this date but ....his abuse has been witness by several home health employees and other medical professionals who have been informed by family members of his abusive behavior.

What can I do to protect her finances as he is withdrawing large sums of money from their joint account without her consent which includes her social security and retirement income. There is no reason for him to be withdrawing this money. I realize it is a joint account but what happens when all the money is gone and she has nothing left to take care of herself.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
