Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
At 24 years old, he is an adult. You have not responsibility to him. Where is the law that says you must allow him to live with you, please?
At one point a while back we went to a lawyer. He had "K" ( the subject in question) sign a document that stated reasons for eviction should he misbehave again. When we took it to the desk at HQ we were told the paper is "worthless because he can't sign his rights away."!!
Again, we don't want him in jail (again). Nor do we want him living in the streets. We want him in some sort of halfway house or mental health facility, but we keep getting told that there's no such thing in Martin County. We wouldn't care if it was in Alaska! We just want him to get the help he needs!!
He doesn't drink or use drugs and it seems that nowadays alcoholics and drug addicts can get more (free) help than the sober young man with mental health problems.
Thanks for your rapid reply.
Standing by, JCK
I see. Well, I suggest you consult with your local health department and see what is available for disabled adults as to assisted living facilities. They may be able to assist you in finding a facility. You also can contact your Office of Social Services. They will have the information you require to get him into such a living facility
Please remember, I can only provide information and guidance and not legal advice.
I'll have to get back to you later this week. BF was not in a very talkative mood this evening.
You are welcome. Best to you with this matter.
