  • Parents in US sue 30-year-old son as he refuses to move out of their house

As they awaited the day that their 30-year-old son would finally leave home, Mark and Christina Rotondo did their best to help him out the door.

The story went viral after Syracuse.com first reported on it last week; its article features a series of letters the Rotondos gave their son, starting with one on February 2 of this year giving him 14 days to move out.

During the 30 minute hearing, the judge tried to convince Mr Rotondo to speak directly to his parents, while he waited.

"You will not be allowed to return", the letter reads.

Michael Rotondo told the judge he knows his parents want him out of the split-level ranch they share.

He said six months was "a reasonable amount of time for someone who has been depending on persons for support".

Court documents indicate that throughout his eight years living with his parents, Michael contributed nothing to household expenses or chores, because he didn't feel he was expected to. Greenwood called the request "outrageous", and encouraged Michael to address his parents directly in the courtroom - which he refused, Syracuse.com reports.

Michael Rotondo told the judge in NY on Monday (local time) he knows his parents want him out of the split-level home they share, but argued he is entitled to six months more time as he is a family member.

"There are jobs available even for those with a poor work history like you", they added in a note sent on 18 February.

The judge also asked for adult protective services because he is concerned about the strained relationship, according to WSTM. They gave him parental advice that included, "Organize the things you need for work and to manage an apartment".

Rotondo said later that he believed he was entitled to another 30 days, which would be plenty of time for him to file an appeal, delaying the eviction. He says he became a father during the brief time when he lived on his own. "We will take whatever actions are necessary to enforce this action".

"I don't presently expect to be there three months from now", he told the judge. "I'm not dragging my business into my business", he said with a smile. But when asked about his business, [Michael] replied: "'My business is my business'".
