Can My Mother In Law Kick Me Out If I’m Divorcing Her Son?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: October 19, 2020

Q: I have been living with my husband for about 4 years in my mother in law’s house. The house is under my mother in law’s name only. My husband has been the only one paying rent since I am a stay at home mom. He has no lease with his mother. We are planning on getting a divorce soon. Can my mother in law kick me out since I don’t pay rent?

A: Generally there is no “self-help” for a tenant eviction – if she wants you out, she’d usually need to commence an eviction proceeding. It’s usually better to sort out such matters in the divorce itself. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Divorce Attorney for a full assessment.
