See you can leave the house and can reside separately but see if the mother is senior citizen she can seek maintenance from you and also  she can seek physical care.

1. Well, this is not a crime for which you can seek recourse to law nor it is advisable either to bring your mother to court.

2. So Either start adjusiting with our mother or by staying separately from your mother. Staying separate for the time being is a good option.

How old are you? depending on your age you can be guided. If you are above 18 years legally you are capable of taking your own decisions then you can stay separate.

You have not mentioned what is your age. If you have attained the age of 18 years then you are the master of your own destiny and thus free to live separately from your parents.

Will suggest you to gradually withdraw from this relationship.

Start maintaining a gap, so that you are not troubled unnecessarily.

If things worsen, send a her a legal notice

Hi madam

You don't ask the question properly , and harassment means which type of harassment.    And you didn't told your age.

If harassment is there, if you prove the harassment against your mother then you file a complaint.

Dear Sir,

You will have to first collect evidence - true evidence, not created ones. You should go to a police station and state the facts. Ideally an FIR should be registered. You can then use that to file a case.

Make sure you are morally and ethically correct. Dont misuse this provision. Not all children are bad. And not all parents are good. We know that from facts. If you they are truly harassing you, you deserve peace, because all individual deserve that.

Dear client 

The solution of your problem is only that manage to get an out station job and get away from your house for some time.  Until your parents realise what is the problem stay away from them.

It's better you leave the house and stay on your own, then to drag your own parents into litigation.

If you cannot tolerate the tortures at home then you are at liberty to leave your home for any other destination of your choice.

If you are an adult and independent then you can decide about leaving the home citing that it would be unbearable to tolerate the tortures or humiliations anymore.

You do not even have to take permission from anyone at home for leaving the house for this reason.

There is no provision in law to obtain restraint order to restrain your mother from talking to you, hence if you cannot live in that house anymore you may better leave the house and live elsewhere provided if you can manage yourself outside without the support or help from your parents.

  1. As per the information mentioned in the present query, makes it clear that you have been taking lot for last many years just with the hope that your mother may change her behaviour towards you.
  2. It is for you to decide as to what exactly you wish to do, as you can leave her house and can also claim right in the house as your portion of the same is of ancestral one.
  3. Or you can approach the local authority also and complaint about your mother plus seeking protection while living in the same premises.

Make a publication in the newspaper and leave the premises 

Give an intimation in the local police station saying that you are moving out on your own and  as such FIR of missing may not be lodged.
