A curious case has been brought before a Judge in the State of New York, USA, where a couple has had to go to court over their 30-year-old son who refuses to move out and get a job. The parents claim that they tried to offer him money and financial advice to send him on his way, but once they put their foot down, they did too.
The son claimed their actions were retaliatory, as they were forced to give him a six-month notice were they to ask him to vacate, however, the parents think 12 years is more than enough. After being taken to court, the judge ruled that the parents had the legal right to ask their adult child to leave.
The son claims the ruling is inappropriate, as all he wanted was a decent amount of time to vacate, however it seems that his parents did provide ample notice with a note written by the father and sent to the son reading, “After a discussion with your Mother, we have decided you must leave this house immediately. You have 14 days to vacate. You will not be allowed to return. We will take whatever actions are necessary to enforce this decision.”
The father went on to lay out several suggestions for his son, the contents of which looked like this:
“1) Organize the things you need for work and to manage an apartment. Note: You will need stuff at (redacted). You must arrange the date and time through your Father so he can set it up with the tenant.
2) Sell the other things you have that have any significant value, (e.g. stereo, some tools etc.). This is especially true for any weapons you may have. You need the money and will have no place for the stuff.
3) There are jobs available even for those with a poor work history like you. Get one – you have to work!
4) If you want help finding a place your Mother has offered to help you.”
After over a decade of chilling at mom & dad’s house, it seems this couple is looking forward to having the house to themselves, and this young adult had better get to house-hunting.
