A: If she or the landlord did not go through the proper eviction process, then you could call the police to try to regain entry, but they might not do anything to help you, and they might tell you to talk to a lawyer. You could sue her for any monetary damages you incur for finding a new place to live, and for the value of any belongings you don't get back. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to consult a local attorney to discuss the situation and your options.
