Tim’s mom, Kathy, says that at 27-years-old, she believed her son should be able to take care of himself and be able to live on his own, not with her as he was. “Tim felt like I owed him something. He once made a statement to me that because I had a child, I should be supporting him for the rest of his life,” Kathy says.
Kathy, who says she took on a second job to pay back Tim’s student loans, claims that when she found drug paraphernalia in his room, it was the last straw and served him with an eviction notice.

“I was charged with domestic battery, interference with a 911 call, and I was charged with destruction of property,” Tim says, adding that he can't move on with his life until these charges are removed from his record. “Until my mom fixes this, there’s no way I can have a relationship with her.”
