I was scheduled to have a conference at family court for a petition to relocate in March. It was canceled due to vivid 29, I live in a home that was owned by my fiancé who died June 22, 2019. Our marriage was planned for July 20, 2019. The home is now owned by his two daughters. One of his daughters needs to live in the home and I will need to move. I am in need of assistance in housing or some type of emergency hearing to move out of the state with my daughter. I am unable to reach anyone in family court. I am unsure of my options.

Me and my fiance are homeless with a 2 year old son. Currently we have been staying at hotels mostly and at a friends house when we don't have the funds for a hotel. My fiance works full time but we can't save any money to get our own place because ever dollar he makes is used so we can get a room and have a place to sleep at night. We are in desperate need of help.

We are the low income senior and disability citizens. We have been paying the high rents in these 3 years. Now, we have to continue to pay the higher and higher rents in another 3 to 5 years to get the low income housing. So, we are now seeking a portion of money to fulfill my income to pay the rent avoiding the eviction from now until then. This year we have to pay $1,050.00/mo. ; next year $1,100.00; after next year $1,150.00 and $1,200.00 afterward. So, we are looking a portion as $ 350.00 to fulfill my affordable fund. Thank you very much in advance for your help.
