So, that means that I don't have to worry about anyone my savings or house? This is for Massachusetts correct?
Thank you for your assistance on guardianship. However, I have an additional problem with him. He has been having violent outbursts and is destroying my property. I have tried to work things out with him, but things have gotten progressively worse. I have asked him to leave before, but he has always conned me into staying, but nothing ever changes. He has the entire family living in fear and he has threatened to kill me.
I have told him he needs to find a place to live. I have given him until Saturday or I will all the police. We are all living in fear and have taken as many precautions to stay safe until he leaves.
Do I have to worry about any problems getting him removed?
I got guardianship when he was still in school. He was having difficulty with impulse control and needed guidance in making decisions. He got himself in trouble with the law and I was looking to be able to help him.
In the past few years, he has been able to take care of himself. He has held a job, managed his own money and is very independent. He will not allow me to help him in anyway. According to him, nothing he does is any of my business and I need to shut up and stay out of his life.
He does not want me to be his guardian, but has not gone through the process to have me removed. I am in the process of resigning, but it takes time and money.
I don't understand why I just cannot make him leave. He is not a tenant. When I tell him to leave and he gets violent, I need to wait for the police to arrive, he could already have hurt me by the time they get there.
