She took a loan out from a high interest loan company. She refuses to give me any details. The loan payback is now up to &10,000. She also put her car up as collateral. They have taken advantage of her disability. We live in Florida. What are the ADA laws against this?
The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) has nothing to do with your wife's apparent mental condition. Nor am I aware of any other federal or state law that could help you stop your wife's uncontrollable behavior.
The right to sue has nothing to do with who knows what. No one can (successfully) sue anyone else unless the person suing has suffered some real damage. Answer: Husband can sue; wife cannot because she was not injured.
