A few things: 1. The best advice is DON'T DO IT. But, of course, family makes this a hard situation, and I understand why you are considering it. 2. If you are renting, you need your LL's permission. 3. Yes, there is truth that letting her live there gives her certain rights as a resident. You need to look up your local laws about establishing residency. Usually, the MIL will become a resident if she lives there for more than 30 days, pays you any rent, changes her address on major accounts, etc. Once she establishes residency, she has a right to 30 days notice to vacate and you'd have to go through courts to get her out if she insists on staying. 4. If she moves in, I would make her sign an agreement with a non-negotiable move out date that states she is only a guest, and none of her actions shall be construed as establishing residency.

Yes, that is absolutely true. Also, do you own the house or are you currently renting? If you are renting, you need your LL's prior written permission for your mother in law to move in & he will most likely insist that she sign the lease. Only the property owner can evict someone.

Do you own the home? If yes, then you would indeed have to issue a 30 day notice.

Between a rock and a hard place is such a terrible place. On the one hand, putting one's mother or their fiance's mother out on the street seems cold and heartless. on the other hand, some people need to fend for themselves. Why not simply offer to help her with the first two month's rent. Won't your state offer a halfway house to help with the transition?
