I was renting a home from my parents when my husband got arrested and went to jail. I had no eviction notice. I am in Tulare County, in the city of Visalia, in California.
I was unable to pay my rent on time, however, the month was not over. With no warning, while I was at work, my parents went into my home and moved me and my three kids out. They moved us in about a day into a smaller house. They told me it was because my husband went to jail.
While I was at work, with no warning, my parents moved our stuff again. They moved us in with them, but this time they threw most my stuff away. When I came home from work, I told my father that I didn't want him to throw my stuff away anymore. On multiple occasions thereafter, they threw away more of my stuff or took it for themselves/friends, again without warning.
The house they are living in now is the first house they moved me out of. This was a house that my son and I found, and my parents were promising to help me buy it. After 6 months they promised to put in my name if I proved that I would continue to work which I have for ten years.
Is there anything legally I can do to get my family out of their grip?
