Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I have the papers for eviction but the process is ridiculous. Take time off work, pay a fee to file, go to court..... Can't I just have an attorney send him a letter to evict. He has only contributed $300.00 towards all household expenses since December 2012. He fishes every weekend, has a camper, truck, two boats but uses me for room and board because as he puts it, "he can". Keeps saying he's moving but makes no effort. He doesn't have the money to move on his own and this situation is making my life miserable.
Your answer is what I have been told in the past but was hoping for a different opinion. My daughter can't understand why I can't get him out. He doesn't pay for anything. This is domestic crap that fills up the courtrooms and I don't want to be part of that scene.
