You would file a petition in court for eviction. The court would schedule a hearing and would evict on proof of breach that continued beyond notice.Practically you may also hire a landlord tenant lawyer to handle the case. Entitled to recover legal fees from tenant.martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options. Good luck. Kindly rate the answer OK or higher.

But can't i just put an eviction notice on her door and hope she moves out voluntarily?
Expert:  Infolawyer replied 5 months ago.
You cannot do that until the court issued an eviction order. You need to file for eviction first!
