My dad passed away today. He has had a live in girlfriend for 9 years. They have separate accounts and not common law. She does help pay for some bills once in a while. How do his kids evict her since the home is 100% in his name.
I personally think it would be hard to find a judge or jury that would believe someone didn’t know they weren’t paying rent for 7 months. That being said, there might have been other things the landlord could have done instead of keeping a tenant in default for over half a year. I would talk...Read more »

If she has been charged with assaulting you, yes you can file suit against her in civil court.

What does your lease say? Landlords frequently include provisions in their leases that override the general rule that a landlord does not have the right to enter leased premises, outside of emergencies, without a tenant’s permission.

Yes, the owner can evict you if she follows the proper legal procedure. There are also legal steps you can take that will delay the actual eviction date... but this type of litigation will not be good for family relationships.
Consult an attorney who focuses on "Landlord-Tenant" law.
We have been separated a couple of months he will barely let me see my son but he left out of town for work and I have my family's second house and my son can I change the locks and not let him back in
If you have temporary orders in place concerning this issue you have to follow them. Your question does not give facts as to whether a divorce action has been filed as of yet.

Whether your sister has the right to require you to pay utilities depends on when the DPOA takes effect and what it says. You might do well to get a written lease and apply to your city for low income heat and and power assistance (LIHEAP).
