Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Someone told me today that you can not evict someone in Wyoming from November to April if they have children. Is this true?
No, not at all. This is an "urban legend" among tenants that they can somehow get a stay of eviction during the winter months simply because they have children. But nothing could be further from the truth. The law doesn't take into consideration how old or how young an occupant is, only if the tenant has lived up to their contractual obligations. If not, then they and everyone else can be evicted. A landlord is not legally obligated to subsidize the tenants in the winter months and can pursue an eviction if they are in breach of the lease the same as in summer..
As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...
