Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
It's a violation of the Fair Housing Act for your landlord to discriminate against you because you or someone living with you is disabled. If there were some rule about not having excessive "traffic" at your home, you can submit documentation from a doctor that your son is disabled and needs assistance from IHSS, along with a request from you that they make a reasonable accommodation by allowing you to stay. It is reasonable to let people come to your home to care for someone who has special needs. That could be an option if they don't know your son is disabled, but it sounds like they do.
Another option is to file a Complaint with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing.
You could also contact a local tenant's rights organization to see if a lawyer there will send a letter to the landlord or management company on your behalf. But you're right - they cannot evict you in this situation.

They can't kick you out because you have visitors due to your son's special needs. You can request a reasonable accommodation and file a Complaint. Or, as I said, you can have a local attorney contact them on your behalf.
