How can I prove that I do not live in my wife’s apartment?

I do not live at the house with my wife, She and I are going through some tough times right now and are separated. My wife is on Section 8 housing and someone reported me there. I am not. I am an over the road truck driver so I live in my truck. Consequently I no way to prove where I live. Housing is trying to evict my wife and kids from their home. No where in the lease does it say that I cannot visit my kids. I am only at the house with them for 2 to 4 days out of each month. How can I help stop the eviction? I need to prove where I live. That’s kind of hard to do when I live in a truck and travel through many states in 1 day.

Your wife needs to talk to legal aid immediately and I mean immediately. That lawyer needs to find out who reported her supposedly and you need to talk to the lawyer and either submit a notarized affidavit or something to show you do not live there, perhaps you have a post office for a mail address and show your logs that you do not live there. If she is getting monetary support from you, that may be a reason Section 8 may be attempting to evict her in that she may make more money with your support than section 8 allows. She should not wait on this at all and there are plenty of legal aid associations in Florida who could help her.
