Hello! My wife and I divorced last year, and I decided to do some traveling. When I returned to the US, she asked me to move back in with her, so I did. Now she's got this control issue going on, and says she's "kicking me out" at the end of August. She has provided no written notice, and I found out that she removed my name from our joint lease without my consent or knowledge. I have always had my stuff here, received mail here, and have always been on time with rent and such...no issues other than she's a control freak. Basically, in the San Diego area, what are my rights? Am I still a co-tenant, legally, or now a sub-tenant since I'm no longer on the lease? If this goes sideways, can I sue her and the landlord? I have no money to move out, and have just applied for total disability. I pay rent to her directly, by the way. Thank you for any help I receive.
