Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Real Estate litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.

Your husband, as power of attorney, has the right to evict your stepson from his mother's home. Even though your step son hasn't paid rent, he would likely be considered a tenant under the law, which requires an eviction.
