Parents sue to evict 30 yr old son

Have ya'll heard about this?


From what I read, it sounds like the "kid" graduated college - never got a real job and lives off his parents

I heard about it. I was thinking that this is clearly a parent problem. They could easily toss his things to the curb and change the locks. They didn't need a court. They needed to parent.

Re: Parents sue to evict 30 yr old son

I worry about the mental stability of the guy. He says he owns a business but won't say what that business is, and according to the story I saw his parents suggested he sell (among other things) his weapons. He has lost visitation with his child and is suing Best Buy for discrimination (?) for not being able to work Sundays.

I don't know what the solution is, and I don't know what the parents have already tried. But the guy clearly needs help. I'm not sure what the end result of evicting him will be.

I don't disagree with you at all. IMO, he's clearly got some challenges. Is he dangerous? Not yet. And because of that, the parents can't do anything wrt his mental health. They don't have any recourse.

Toss him out and let him find his way into either a homeless shelter, a mental health facility, or maybe he'll finally learn to fly.

What gets me is that he wanted 6 more months - if he'd started to get the ball moving 6 months ago (when they first told him he needed to get out) he'd be in a better position
