I got into a heated argument with my mother whom let her boyfriend of one week -who is a drug user , doesn't work and was in jail not too long ago- sleep in our home which I was opposed to since he was/is a stranger. Her argument was that she wants to know him more and how will she if he's not staying over and that it's her house not mine so she told me to leave if I don't like her decision. I gave her money in cash for a deposit to our home which she refuses to give back. She's since then moved her bf of 4 weeks in our basement regardless of my wishes and wants me out of the house. We are both head of household but she refuses to let me make any decisions and puts all the bills under her name but takes my money. I'm disabled. What can I do? Can she kick me out? Can I kick her bf out? He contributes no money at all and uses everything in our home.
This all depends on the lease that you have. Are others allowed to stay there who are not on the lease? If you and your mother are both on the lease, she cannot kick you out. Read the lease and see what it says about having others on the home.
