HelloMy name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to discussing this and providing you information in this regardI am sorry that your are enduring this situationI suggest that you will have to go through the eviction process. However, while that is taking place, I also suggest you can go to the Magistrate or District Court Commission in your county and request a Restraining Order. You will need to state that he is a threat to your wellbeing and that you are fearful of him - you can state specifically that he brings strangers into your home while you are asleep, etc. And that you are afraid and fearful for your safetyTo begin the eviction process, you have to deliver to him a Notice to Vacate within 30 days. That has to be mailed to him Certified with Return Receipt Requested to show he got the Notice
While you are at the Magistrate's office for the Restraining Order tell them you also are going to evict him and mailing his Notice to Vacate, and will be needing a dispossessory warrant I hope that this information is helpful. If you need further information, please just send me a reply asking for clarification. After that, I hope you will enter a positive rating so that I will be credited for assisting you. Thanks again for using this service. Your business is appreciated
Thank you for your answers. Can you clarify a few items in your response.
What is a dispossessory warrant?
Who issues the notice to vacate within 30 days?
Is it the court after we file the eviction or do we have to compose a notice and send it to him certified mail?
What if he does not respond to the certified notice, meaning he is not there to receive it and does not pick it up?
HelloI am here. And I apologize for the delay in this response. I had an inner office meeting I had to attendThe warrant will be the courts notice of your son to come to court for the eviction hearing. This is issued after YOU and your spouse have given the Notice to Vacate by certified mail to your son. Both of you must sign thisIf he ignores the letter, then I suggest you have him served by a Private Process Server who will hand him the letter and attest that he got it.Again, I apologize for the delay in this response
