The parents of a 30-year-old man resorted to drastic measures to get their son out of the family home.
According to Court of Justice documents, Michael Rotondo does not pay rent, does not handle chores, and refuses to accept his parents’ proposals to find his own home.
Despite the distribution of five eviction letters, Christina and Mark Rotondo say their son still refuses to leave. Michael argues that legally, he did not receive enough notice to leave.
Mr. and Mrs. Rotondo filed a complaint at the Supreme Court of Onondaga County, near Syracuse, New York, USA, on May 7, after months of urgent calls to bring their son to his senses.
Their lawyer, Anthony Adorante, told Syracuse.com that the couple did not know how to get their adult son out of their home.
“We have decided that you must leave this house immediately, ” reads the first letter, dated February 2, according to documents filed by the courts.
When Michael ignored the letter, his parents wrote a deportation notice with the help of their lawyer.
” You are hereby expelled” , a notice of February 13 signed by Mrs. Rotondo
The couple then offered their son $ 1,100 to move.
However, by March 30, it was becoming clear that their son had no intention of leaving. In April, Mr. and Mrs. Rotondo went to the city court to see if they could evict their son.
But they were told that because Michael is part of the family, they would need a Supreme Court judge to send him officially to leave.
At a hearing in the Onondaga County Supreme Court Tuesday, Judge Donald Greenwood ruled that Michael will indeed have to leave his parents’ home, once and for all. Michael called the decision “scandalous”.
Although no deadline for his deportation was given to the court, Michael said he planned to appeal, CNY Central reported.
