A: How did she kick you out of your home? Only a court order can kick you out.

You are going to be ordered to pay child support for the twins assuming Mom has primary. Your child support will be reduced but not by much since you have a third child. If you are on the lease, the landlord can pursue you for the rent but again that entitles you to be in the rental home too.

Mom needs to get a job and you all are going to have to figure this out. Perhaps in short run, move back in with mom till she gets a job.
