Q: Need help and assistance from lawyer legally help me to have my son abide by the house rules or move out of the house
i have a 18 yr old son who has been very disrespectful, abusive and threatening to me and my wife with bad behaviour. He doesnt want to follow any house rules. Have dropped out of the college, being out whole night, comes back in the morning and sleeps whole day. When we ask him to change is behavior or leave the house for good he says he will not. He is basically a bully and a threat. I need help from lawyer to send him legal notice to follow house rules/contract including change is behavior to live in the house or he will be evacuated. He works part time but he cant afford to live by himself. The legal action and warning might help him bring back to the track. If it diesnt he needs to leave. I can share more details afterwards. I live with my family and 3 children in Katy TX.
A: Unfortunately, there is not a court with jurisdiction over an 18-year-old adult. This is not an issue that can be resolved within the legal system (nor should you want it to). If he doesn't want to abide by the house rules, then he should no longer be allowed to live in the house.
