An Illinois attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. You could repost and add Social Security as a category.

Things not looking good for me. Seems that I'm going to be homeless but not sure any shelters will be open. I've heard people under 40 go to nursing homes
Family wont help me out.
answered on Jul 21, 2020
It's impossible to say without knowing the details of your situation. Nursing homes generally charge people to stay there. It is better to get an apartment or section 8 housing if you can. Call the Chicago Homelessness Prevention Call Center at 311 for advice regarding your situation.
Likely considered homeless as I just live with my older relative over the years. Have no options really except maybe stay in my car as a distant relative pushed on me.

A mental health clinic is not a place for free housing. It's a place for people who have serious mental defects that need to be institutionalized so as not to harm themselves or others. Telling the police that you are homeless won't get you sent to one. Why involve the police in this?... Read more »

If you received the subpoena and a check for witness fees and mileage, you must go. If there no check was enclosed with the subpoena, you must either go or have an attorney appear on your behalf to ask that the subpoena be quashed for failure to pay the witness fee.
My friend has been denied residency at a mobile home park in Freeport, Il. He served his sentence in full and has caused no issues in the trailer park at any time.

No. The law does not allow the State to deny you residency. Landlord has the right to deny you a place to rent, however.

about 5yrs ago my husband bought me a ring for Christmas. I have moved since then and I know I lost it. I haven't seen it for months. how or what do I need to do now?

I've seen plenty of people arguing on whether modding a video game is illegal, so I just want to know once and for all
answered on Nov 8, 2015
You need to give specifics here, a lot more facts than just a question as to whether modifying a video game is illegal or not. It could, in all honesty, take many hours of legal research in order to be able to answer your question. It would depend upon the facts of the individual case of modifying... Read more »
