Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Are you saying that he is the only one on the deed to the property as the legal owner?
Has he given her any type of written notice to vacate?
Does she have any type of child support order against him?
Ok, then from a legal perspective, if they aren't married, he can evict her, even though they have children together. However, he would have to give her a written one month notice (2 if in Montgomery County or Baltimore City) in order to terminate her tenancy.
Then after that notice period expires, he would have to pursue a formal eviction action through the courts, which takes about 3-4 weeks longer before he could have a sheriff or marshal physically force her to leave.
So if he gives her a notice, she should start trying to find somewhere to move to, at least temporarily, and immediately file a petition for child support so she can force him to pay to support his children..
You are very welcome. Glad to help any time..
If you feel your original question and any related follow ups have been answered, I would very much appreciate a positive rating on the answer I have provided as that is the only way I receive credit for my work. If you have a new question the JustAnswer folks require that you start a new question page, but you can request me by putting "For Barrister" in the caption and they will get it to me.
