In a unique legal battle that has captured attention, an Italian mother, aged 75, has successfully secured a court order to evict her two adult sons, aged 40 and 42, from her home in the northern city of Pavia.
Despite her best efforts, the elderly mother was unable to persuade her adult sons to move out, even though both were employed and self-sufficient. She had supported them during periods of unemployment with the expectation that they would leave once they found jobs, but this transition never materialized.
Furthermore, the two brothers failed to contribute to household expenses and neglected their responsibilities within the home. Their actions included returning late at night and leaving their belongings in disarray, creating a tense living environment.
Faced with their unyielding stance, the mother resorted to a bold step by seeking an eviction order through the legal system. Judge Simona Caterbi, understanding the mother’s predicament, ruled in her favor.
The court recognized that while it was the mother’s obligation to provide for her adult children when they were unemployed, this responsibility no longer applied as they were both over 40 and gainfully employed.
The ruling emphasized that the law did not grant adult children an unconditional right to remain in their parents’ home against their wishes solely based on family ties.
As per the court’s decision, the two brothers are required to vacate their mother’s home by December 18, bringing an end to this unusual family legal saga.
