Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have already recieved, other information I needed, but below is the situation:

 

My 17 (4 months from 18) year old left our house over a month ago over an arguement over grades. While leaving, he punched a hole through my front door. My two younger daughters watched, my husband was not home. I never kicked him out, he left willingly. I have full custody, but my son has recently touched base with my ex husband after 8 years. Over the weeks the words get harsher and harsher. Threats of law suits and police, when Im currectly unemployed, own nothing but my kids and have no fear of police as Ive done nothing wrong. I have all the communications between us and the door with the hole. He's wanting to come today to get his things, which Im fine with, but I dont want him back in my house because of the anger and aggression. I will box all of his things and place in atrium area of our house. He's threatening to bring the police and Im not sure why, what purpose would that serve and what can I do to protect myself?

Hello,

So sorry to hear of this dilemma. If my answer is not clear to you, please ask me for clarification by using the reply button.

Due to your son's anger and aggression, having the police present may be beneficial.

You may contact the police and request a civil assist. In effect you would be asking the police to have an officer present at your house at the time your son comes to pick up his items to prevent the possibility of violence

H epicked up his things with no issues, thank God. But if I cant make him stay and he insists on living with his dad, do I have to provide him his social card and birth certifcate?
Expert:  FiveStarLaw replied 3 years ago.

You are not required to turn those items over to him absent a court order
