Parents Take Son to Court After He Refuses to Leave Their Home

Parents Take Son to Court After He Refuses to Leave Their Home

A NY judge has ordered a 30-year-old man to move out of his parents' home - after the couple tried and failed for months to get their deadbeat son to fly the coop.

Public records connect him to two other Syracuse-area homes, where he is said to have lived between 2008 and 2010, when he would have been 21 to 23 years old.

Rotondo's parents and their attorney had no comment leaving court, but Rotondo provided some insight into the dynamic under their roof. "Get one - you have to work!" No specified deadline was stated in court, but the lawyer mentioned that it would include reasonable time for Rotondo to vacate.

The judge credited Rotondo's legal research in finding the prior case, but pointed to an appellate court decision that overrode it.

During his court appearance, Mr Rotondo told State Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood he knew his parents wanted him to move out of their home in Camillus, near Syracuse.

Rotondo also says he's locked in a custody battle with his son's mother - and that his parents' demands for him to find a steady paycheck threatened his ability to waive court fees, according to The Daily Mail.

In one letter written February 2, Rotondo's parents wrote: "Michael, After a discussion with your Mother, we have decided that you must leave this house immediately", signed, "Mark and Christina Rotondo". Their son had argued with the judge and at one point approached the bench without permission.

Afteward, Rotondo called out to the television camera crews to meet him outside the courtroom for an interview.

The judge instructed the parents' lawyer to draft an eviction order.

Rotondo called the ruling "outrageous". On Tuesday, he said he accepted $1,100 from his parents earlier this year - but the money went toward "expenses" rather than toward moving out.

There Michael answered their questions, telling them he occupies a bedroom in his parents' home, does not speak to them and is not ready to leave home.

"Michael, here is $1100 from us to you so you can find a place to stay", a letter from February 18 starts.

Rotondo is far from the only older child still living at home in the United States: according to a Pew Research Centre study, almost a third of 18 to 34-year-olds lived with their parents in 2016.

"I want you out of that household", Greenwood told him, according to ABC News.
