Evicting adult child
I would like to communicate with any parent who has gone through the process of legally evicting an adult child from the family home. I met with an attorney through the Alameda County Bar Association referral service, but if my adult child and child's significant other choose to contest the eviction, I cannot afford the lawyer's fees, so I will be handling this on my own. I have the Nolo Press book for landlords. I was shocked to learn that, at some point over the last 24 years, I became a landlord and my child, a tenant, according to the law, even though no rent has ever been involved. (My child's significant other became a tenant simply by dint of having lived at my house for X amount of days.) The situation involves drug use, assault (multiple police calls) and a fire (the fire was accidental, but drug use by my child's significant other was involved). Though I am over 65, there apparently are no legal services for seniors that assist landlords. It would be helpful to talk to someone who'd been through this. Please feel free to contact me directly. Thank you.
