husband and i currently homeless. barely scrape by, let alone have enough to cover a hotel so we're sleeping in our truck.. the truck bed has a topper w/windows but windows are covered while parked for privacy. we park on a somewhat of an isolated public street. no excessive noise, trouble, etc.. are we breaking any laws, parking or otherwise?
I am going to move you to General Practice.
There are a lot of government programs that may help you. Start with Medicaid and she what advice you can get. Also, try the Colorado Deparment f Labor and Employment.
I don't know about sleeping in your truck, so I can't help there. Maybe another attorney can give you some advice. I am inclined to tell you to move from place to place so you don't draw attention. Also, a bigger city will have more agencies to help you.
I have practiced law for over 40 years and currently reside in Colorado. I am licensed to practice in Texas and Colorado. For the most part, I practice in the area of estate planning, which includes drafting wills and powers of attorney, guardianships, probate, real estate, and related issues. My response to your question does not create an attorney-client relationship with me or any attorney. My response is based on the information provided.
Whether you're breaking any parking laws depends on where you're parked, but otherwise I don't think you're breaking any law. Be absolutely clear, though, about neither drinking alcohol, nor carrying it, in your car, or drinking and then sleeping in your car, because you can be charged with drunk driving even if the car isn't moving or been started.
