Pleasanton, CA asked in Criminal Law, Domestic Violence, Intellectual Property and Landlord - Tenant for California

Q: Last night my boyfriend, 19, got into an argument with his dad. His dad told him to get out or he’d get his gun.

He pays rent as well, and his dad gave him absolutely no warning, but as soon as he said he was getting his gun, he went upstairs and we left as quickly as we could. He didn’t give him the opportunity to take any of his personal belongings, which he owns all of so hopefully his dad won’t touch it, but I don’t know if he’ll let us in unless we have legal reason to.

A: I'm not sure kind of legal advice you are looking for? If you're concerned about an illegal eviction, there may be some novel legal argument to make, which is not my area of practice. If your concerned about threats that were made, you can report them to your local police department if you wish.

A: your boyfriend is an adult and the eviction procedure, which usually requires written notice was not followed. However, this is a question for a lawyer that focuses on that area of law.......not a criminal lawyer. Since he pays rent I would think the law governing evictions would apply.

a lawyer would want to know a LOT more info

i doubt if the threats are actionable and hopefully with a little time, cooler heads will prevail.
