I have a niece who has been abused. She left VA and came to live with me for her safety. Now her husband has stopped tp pay the rent in Virginia and the landlord has done a Abandonment letter and the Court Date is the 14 May in Virginia. We have called a lawyer and we got told that she has to wait 6 month and that they can't help her with court date. I don't understand why we can't find anybody that can help us. Doesn't louisiana has any laws to protect this abused spouse and can help her so she doesn't have to go to Virginia!! I hope you can point me at the right direction.
