A: It depends on if you own the lot your mobile home sits on or if you rent the lot as well as the language in any documents governing the mobile home park and your lease, if the lot is rented. Generally, if you rent the lot the landlord can evict you as well as your daughter for violations of the lease. If you own the lot the park would have to sue you and ask the court to issue an order requiring you to evict your daughter. You don't mention what the violation was, so if it was something minor you might be able to negotiate with the park for another chance.
