Hello I have a question about living with my dad and his wife. My husband and I pay rent and that goes towards the power bill. She doesn’t want us here because my husband has three vehicles in the back on 5 acres and she thinks it’s a junkyard. Well it’s broken down his works every day and he’s just about done working and has will have time to fix it. Fix one of his cars and she wants call tow truck and she wants us to move out because it’s a junkyard and we’re disrespectful which we are not. My dad will not want us to move but she does. What do we do ? I am also on disability, so I have a limited income. I don’t know what to do or how to do whatever I need to do to stay here or I’m confused and afraid.

    Hello @Mmo1488

    I'm so sorry, that sounds so frustrating. Since you posted yesterday, has anything else happened?

    I have popped your post into our Housing and Independent Living section. In case you had any more questions, queries, or somebody would be able help with housing and being on a limited income and disability. 

    There are a few questions I had when reading this. Can I ask if you generally have a good relationship with your dad's wife? I ask as I wonder if this is out of the blue. I also wonder if there is anyone you know with the space where the vehicles can be taken so that they couldn't continuously be referred to as an issue if your dad's wife still wants you to move out, it could reveal another reason?

    You said your dad will not want you to move out, has he said that or said anything about it all? 

    I can see you are new to the community, they really are a lovely bunch here, so if you need to vent, vent away :)

    Thanks Hannah no she wants us to move out she’s psycho and is selfish and can only think about her and spending money on things like an $1800 swimming she’s used once this summer my dad has said he doesn’t want me to move out and the trucks will be moved once one is fixed is just awhole bunch stupid things with her I thought she had changed but I was totally wrong. Well I live in oregon so I don’t know if any one here particularly could help but thank you
