The parents of a 30-year-old man refusing to fly the nest have taken drastic action against their son in a bid to make him move out.
Michael Rotondo is refusing to budge despite his parents, Christina and Mark Rotondo, asking him for several months to pack his bags at their home in Camillus, New York, US television station WSTM reported.
After several written notices for their son to leave their home passed without response and showing “no indication” he will leave, they decided to up the ante and filed court documents to have the case heard by the Supreme Court of New York State.
The filings reveal the couple were informed they were unable to evict their son as he is a family member, and he would need to be removed through an ejectment proceeding.
However Michael has argued that their five written notices hadn’t given him adequate time to leave the property and his parent’s request is an act of retaliation.

He has asked the court to dismiss his parents’ case.
He also noted he “has never been expected to contribute to household expenses, or assisted with chores and the maintenance of the premises” because it is “simply a component of his living agreement.”
A hearing on the matter is set for May 22.
