Dear JA Customer:
Thank you for allowing me to assist you with your question.
Your question is very important to me, but please remember that I can only respond to the information you provide and I do not know your entire situation. My response is limited to what you have written to me and the answer may change with additional facts.
Also, due to site reasons, there are times I am initially only able to see a portion of post, so I apologize in advance if it means that you have to duplicate information.
There may be future facts that are as yet undetermined in your matter, that can and must leave some areas of information provided by me broad in nature. However, don't hesitate to ask for clarification if needed! At times, there can also be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be helping other customers or taking a break. Now, let’s address your question!
Yes, you can have her sited for trespassing however, expect her to tell the cops she is a renter or has the right to be there. You will need your husband, her father to back you up or they are just going to tell you it is civil and you will have to go through an eviction process to get her out.
If you think she has drugs in the house, you can certainly call the cops to come and search the house for her drugs, but understand that it could backfire on you and if it does, then they could try to take your house for forfeiture. I would not risk it.
One thing to do is when she and the kids go out is to have the locks changed, the garage door code changed and have her stuff packed and outside waiting for her to pick it up... could be just the thing. Though, I would hate to see the children suffer because she is not so nice.
If she is using drugs and you report her, CPS can take the children and if the father wants them, he should get them, or you could end up with them for foster care. All of these are things you need to consider for your game plan.
I wish you the best in this difficult situation.
Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. Good luck and Godspeed.
