Q: Eviction

So my mother and I own a house together. I am on the deed of the house. She is trying to evict my boyfriend and father of my child out of the house we all live in. He pays one bill that is in her name. Can I fight her on trying to evict him? Can she even legally evict him if hes paying her Bill's?we also all get our mail and Bill's at this house and he has lived with us for 2 years. What legal action can we take because we are trying to buy our own house and I'm afraid this eviction will ruin any chances of getting our own place buy or rent.

A: If your mother owns the home, then she can evict your boyfriend. Simple as that. Since he has lived there 2+ years, she will have to go through the formal eviction process as he has clearly established residency there. It does not matter at all that he has been helping to pay bills.
