Hello. I'll be happy to assist you.

I understand your situation. Are you asking what your next steps as far as eviction goes are?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Well I'm in NC now so I just want her out. I gave her notice so I don't know what to do at this point
Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 5 months ago.

Right, but the property is in Nebraska, correct?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 5 months ago.

OK. So, you'd have to follow the Nebraska eviction process.
Since you've already given notice of your intent to evict her, your next step is to file a petition for removal in the court where the property is located.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I understand
Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 5 months ago.

This will be done in district court. Once you file that with the court, you will have to serve a copy of the petition on the tenant.
