The short of it all is my dad is an angry man who is using the legal system to abuse me. My dad wants me to move out (I’m on disability due to car accidents and surgeries) so much that he brought me to family court, yet his attempts have failed. Yesterday I received a “Notice to Quit”, making it be 12/9/19 that I need to be gone by.
—What I need to know, is can my father evict me by himself? I’ve done nothing but keep to myself for most part. My mother won’t sign an eviction notice...so can he evict me by himself?? My mother isn’t happy about these petty games especially when it involves eviction. They both own the house (both names on mortgage), so shouldn’t my father need my mother to be on board so he can do this? What are my options?
Your Mother must affirmatively oppose your Father's notice to quit. She could do so with a written revocation of the notice.
A landlord/tenant proceeding may be improper since family usually must use a Supreme Court lawsuit to evict family members from a family home.
