Your son has the right to stay in his home.
His wife cannot remove him from the home without a court action
She keeps telling him to leave because the baby needs the stability of her own home.
Can she lie and say he is abusive to get a court order?
Yes that is a possibility. Your son may want to petition the court for an order of exclusive occupancy of the house and temporary custody of his child
OK, to do that does he have to get a lawyer? If so how much do you think that will cost him? Money is tight.
The law does not require that your son retain an attorney. However it is highly advisable as an attorney will typically have the knowledge and experience to protect your son's best interest. Additionally, since your daughter-in-law makes twice as much money as your son, your son can request attorneys fees and temporary alimony
Of course an attorney would best know how to make this request.
Wow... they is a relief. Thank you very much!
It is my pleasure. I wish you and your family a very happy new year.
Happy New Year and I will give you an Excellent rating.
