I have allowed someone to live in the home i lease with me

I have allowed someone to live in the home i lease with me since I moved to Wichita in June 2011. We have lived in the current home since February 2013. we were separated for a couple months in 2013. The relationship is very emotionally damaging and has been physical in the past. The house is leased to me, with the individual listed as residing there. How do I evct them? I reviewed some paperwork..but it only listed past due rent as a reason for the eviction. When I fill it out do I fill it in as I am the Landlord...or are their special forms for an eviction under these circumstances?

You just explained ""Slander of title". I have a judgment

You just explained ""Slander of title". I have a judgment against me, but when an error was detected, the Judge ordered that I should be getting credit for some of the equipment held by this judgment winner. This credit was never given to me, but instead, an attempt was made to get me found in willful contempt for not posting supersedeas bond, or pay on judgment. The contempt was denied. However, to this date, the fifa lien in my house has not been reduced or removed. The right way for that credit of 130K requires reduction of my judgment of 135K down to 5K. But I continue to have to deal with this fifa lien of 135K that has not been even reduced to whatever they believe should be my credit. Isn't this a slander of title with explicit intentions of continuing to damage me?

appeal bond

A. Please would you tell me what normally happens to the money deposited as a bond for an appeal, if the appellant loses? Does the court keep that money? B. In our case I'm not sure how much we should claim when we file our writ of attachment. This is because the total debt owed, from the judgement in MD, is $2,800. $1,700 is currently held in escrow by the court in VA, and the amount of the bond paid is also $1,700. Since we have received nothing yet, I guess we could claim the whole $1,700 when we file the writ, but if we were to be successful at the appeal then we will be paid the $1,700 in escrow and would not be entitled to the whole amount of the bond since that would mean we'd received $3,400. Can you explain how we should proceed with the writ re the amount we should claim?

Tenant rented house and rent was current. Tenant died. Sister

Tenant rented house and rent was current. Tenant died. Sister named administrator by probate court, but rent had run out by then. Landlord refused to allow sister access to tenant's property, now is suing tenant's estate for several months back rent, and wants to sell tenant's property to pay this back rent. Landlord wants this back rent because deceased tenant's belongings were still in rental house. Is this possible. This is in Georgia.

Pro se plaintiff has filed notice of appeal today, and she

Pro se plaintiff has filed notice of appeal today, and she is appealing the order for her to post the supersedeas bond. I'd like to know if a judge can correctly require a supersedeas bond in these circumstances, which I will describe as briefly as possible.My husband and I obtained default judgement for $2,800 against plaintiff [ district court MD ]. Plaintiff appealed to circuit court and lost appeal. The dispute was over a rental arrangement which went wrong - plaintiff was the landlord. She then filed suit in Federal court in Virginia, claiming we had done all sorts of ridiculous things to damage her and her property, and asking the court for $2,000,000 in damages and to overturn the default judgement. During the case she told the judge that if we collected on the judgement she would be unable to pay her mortgage and could be repossessed. He suggested an agreement whereby we forestalled collection for time being and she paid $100 per month into court to be held in escrow pending outcome of the case plus any appeal. She lost the case and she lost the appeal. An order was issued to pay out the $1,700 which was in escrow to my husband and myself. Plaintiff wished to appeal that order and judge imposed a supersedeas bond, also of $1,700. She paid the bond and has now filed notice of appeal re both orders [ the order to pay the money to us and the order that she should pay a bond ]. So, my question is, can a judge impose such a supersedeas bond in these circumstances?

Question is about supersedeas bonds and Federal court. Id

Question is about supersedeas bonds and Federal court.I'd like to know what happens if a pro se plaintiff is asked to pay an amount into court as a supersedeas bond, before being allowed to appeal a judgement of that court. If the appeal is lost, what happens to that money? I ask because my husband and I [ we are the defendants in this Federal case ] already have a judgement against this same person from a court in another state. There remains an unpaid amount on that first judgement. Can this second court pay money to us out of the funds from the bond, to satisfy that first judgement, once the appeal has been decided in our favor?
