Asked in Landlord - Tenant for Illinois

Q: Do my grandparents need an eviction notice been living with them for 4 months. Not on the lease and didn't pay rent.

I'm 18 years old. I moved in with my great grandparents November 20th 2016. I've been staying with them since then taking care of them. I'm not on the lease and they said I didn't have to pay rent. This Monday of February my mom had came over with an eviction notice wanting me to sign it. I told her I'm not she then got upset and told my aunt , so they said "we'll do whatever it takes to get him out today". So they called the police and said I threatened them and I got in their face. Which I never did any of that. But because it was 2 against one they took me to jail. I got out Tuesday. It says I can't go back to the residence of my aunt or mom. Well my mom has her own house and so does my aunt. But my aunt comes to my great grandparents house at night after work for 4 days and stays the night then leaves in the morning Monday-Thursday. After what happened my grandad said he doesn't want me back does he need to get a 30 day eviction before just kicking me out?

A: A lot depends on whether there is an order or protection or restraining order against you. Generally, in order to evict someone in the State of Illinois, you need to go through the court. You would benefit from speaking with an attorney about your individual situation. Bring a copy of the police report to the meeting.
