My husband is passed away. My Mother in law was my employer, property management, I was apartment manager. She went thru every loop and had me removed from that position by filing an unlawful detainer. The position was filled by my sister i n law. At time of filing unlawful detained she filed in probate for guardianship of my son, was vacated. That was 5 yrs. Ago. Circumstances led to my son and I living in her home. She has made continuous effort to get me to leave but leave my son, bullying me, physically mentally and emotionally. Recently she had her neice come to her home. The neice physically attacked me (pulled my hair, drug me to ground, hit me but not punch) Mother in law watched with smirk on her face. I did not file charges but there is something on file to document. Having no where, I've let my son go in while she is at work I spend time with my son, give him meals, homework when she is home I go in get him ready for bed read tuck him in. I don't want to fight so voluntarily stay on the outside including sleeping in car in front of house Last night I fell asleep with him and she came to the room and stated I had to leave now.
You need to find alternate housing for you and your son. It is obvious you are not welcome there. It is time to move on.
Ordinarily she would have ti give you notice, but you have pretty much made yourself an outsider. You seem to need to therapy, so as not to invite people to abuse you. Think of what this is doing to your son.
