I am hoping one of these two groups can provide some insight on a
matter I am involved in.
Background: I grew up in the same home with my mother and 2 uncles.
Run down house in poor area. One of my uncles is a VERY argumentative
person and all through childhood I kept seeing these big
confrontations between him and my mother and other uncle.
Once I finished college I was able to buy my mother a home. Well it's
hers with the execption that I legally own it and make the payments.
My two uncles were invited to stay there for free since they both have
The argumentative uncle has continued his confrontational ways and at
many times I have been tempted to have him put out but didn't because
he does accompany my mother places so she dosen't have to go alone and
helps out around the house (which we pay him for) because my other
uncle is sick (suffered a stroke some time back). The guy is very
argumentative and when I say this it may sound like an exagerration
but if you lived there you would know it's sad but true that he
manages to blow up over something at least once every other day
Anyway today was the last straw. I call home and hear that he is
threatning to beat up my mother because of this. My argumentative
uncle borrowed money from someone and wants my other sick uncle and
mother to repay his debt.
There is no way I am going to allow this guy to stay there and he is
threatning to "beat up" my mother. They are in Louisiana by the way
but I live in another state.
Anyway my question is what do I have to do to have this guy out? As
home owner can I legally just give him notice that I want him out of
there? If so how much time can I give him. He dosen't pay rent. Of
course there is no proof other than hearsay that he was going to beat
her up but hey hearing my mother's voice cracking in fear on the phone
is all the proof I need. If anyone knows what legal proceudres I have
to take or can point me in the right direction or more appropriate
group I would appreciate it.
