Customer Question

my adult daughter (38) has been living with my husband and me for the past - almost a year. She pays no rent. She does get food stamps and contributes that way, but I never asked her for that. She volunteered to do that. She does not have a job, is on the phone or internet all day and night. Very seldom does she ever do anything around the house. How can I get her to move out? She is very conniving and knows just how to get under your skin. I don't know how to get her to leave. Please help me.

Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Since this is your home, if you do not want her there any longer, you do have a legal right to ask her to leave. In doing so, you want to give her the proper written notice ( i.e. at least 30 days) and advise her to vacate. If she refuses and still remains, it would be at that point that you need to proceed through the court and file for eviction and get a court order, granting it. She does have rights, in the sense that you can not use self help to get her out by changing the locks or throwing her stuff on the streets, since she can turn around and sue you. However, since that is her current residence, you do need to go through the proper steps and procedures. Ideally, you would be able to work and come to an agreement as to when she will leave but if not, then you need to go through the legal route and process.
