Facts: Our client had an eviction suit filed against him by the children of his widow. The children claimed that he was never married to their mother, and as a result, he did not have a right to live in their mother’s home after she passed away. Our client had documents showing that (1) his widow had referred to him as her husband in handwritten notes, (2) they had filed married tax returns, and (3) one of the children had referred to our client as her mother’s husband in a handwritten note.
Result: After a trial, possession of the property was awarded to our client. The judgment resulted in securing possession of his home for as long as he chose to live there.
