    Allidavits are usually only allowed if the witness is unavailable due to some remarkable circumstances. The other side can argue that the are denied an opportunity to examine the witness so it could be treated as hearsay. Same applies to all affidavits. You could use a discovery technique to admit the person's testimony. Seel local legal representation. The response does not form an attorney-client relationship, nor is it intended to be anything other than the educated opinion of the author....

    Maybe they have a sleeping area for the son in a den or living room. The new spouse is probably in charge and does not want to displace her daughters. Work with your ex on this. There is probably no legal recourse. Good luck.

    You have no legal relationship. Do you have a written lease? If so he must evict according to lease terms. Otherwise you are a tenant at will and will require 60 days notice. Good luck.
