Secondly, wow! I am so sorry to hear that your daughter is taking advantage of you and of the system apparently. You may have already tried this, but let me suggest a different approach before you hire the attorney. Can you sit your daughter down and tell her you will open your home to her with the requirement that she get some training/education and start making steps toward supporting herself and her son. Does she realize that you cannot afford to keep the house without income coming in from the house?
Then, if that doesn't work immediately - she doesn't even have time to think about this - hire the attorney. Just be prepared for a further strain to be put on your relationship if you do. However, it could be her wakeup call to do what is right!
All my best,
I agree with Monique. You need to get a lawyer to evict your daughter and all things will follow. As you said, she needs to earn her own keep. I hope you have the back bone to follow-up on this especially this property was left by your Mom to You. Good Luck and just keep in mind that You are doing the right thing.
All the best,
I had a came across a similar situtation recently. Person passed away and there daughter (who was not left the house) moved in. What they did in that situtation is hired an eviction attorney. I can find the number of the person they used if you shoot me an email directly as I'll have to contact the owner to get it. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
