When Paul* returned from serving in Iraq, he suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and some physical challenges that interfered with his ability to maintain a regular job. While in a Veteran’s Administration Hospital, he received notice that the bank was foreclosing on his home. With four small children in their home, Paul and his wife sought help from Legal Aid.
Even though Paul was in the hospital, his Legal Aid attorney worked with him to respond to the bank in court. After successfully working to save his home, Paul's attorney also obtained reinstatement of funds and mortgage payment assistance, enabling Paul to support his family and maintain their home until he began receiving his VA and Social Security Benefits.
With the help of Legal Aid, Paul was able to focus on improving his health knowing that his wife and children were stabilized and secure in their own home.
