My mom texted me and said don’t come home, I didn’t call the cops I went to court to have you removed from my house. I was told I needed to be surved a paper to go to court but never received it. I am 22 years old with no income and on probation, with no where to go. I have animals and reptiles to take care of and she will not let me in to fed them. What can I do? Is there anything I can do? This just happened out of no where.
Greetings. Your question requires further discussion. You should speak with a good New York Landlord Tenant lawyer or Family Rights lawyer. For example, if it turns out that your parent is the owner, then she can kick you out. If you are the owner, or have other rights to the residence (such as co-tenant rights), then she cannot kick you out. Also, your age may be an important factor. Please give more information to the attorney you eventually consult with. Good luck.

You don't have to voluntarily vacated your apartment. Your mother musr first start a holdover eviction action in Housing Court against you.

If you have never paid rent, she need only give you 10 days' notice and if you have ever paid rent, a months' notice. Yes, you'd need to be served either way. Call the police if you have been illegally evicted - or else go back and let her call the police. Will she not feed your pets? Do you really want to go to war with your mom? Really happened out of nowhere? Is mom suffering a mental crisis or has something gone terribly wrong? Maybe you need to call someone to help her. Is she married and/or does she have anyone else living with her?
If you vote my answer as best an angel will get her wings. Also, I'm only two best answers away from getting a free Subway Sandwich! I may be guessing or not licensed in your state so don't rely upon anything I say. No attorney/client relationship exists. Please do not email me privately in response to my answers here - I have no idea which post you're following-up with! Who reads these disclaimers anyway? If you're reading this, let me know because I'm curious. Did you know that a watched pot never boils and that a stitch in time saves nine? Or that a rolling stone gathers no moss? Honestly, I am surprised that you are still reading this disclaimer. Personally, I normally don’t pay much attention to these things. I am impressed and I commend you for taking the time. I never actually anticipated anyone would ever get this far into my disclaimer and I only wish I had something more meaningful to say. Thank you for bearing with me and for sticking it out to the end.
