Second opinion] How can my Wife & I evict our 22-year-old daughter from our family home?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

We live in Brisbane.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

She's taking drugs - smoking pot. Stoned a lot of the time. Associating with drug dealers and bringing strange people home at all hours. My Wife & I are concerned about our personal security.

Dear customer, in relation to your important matter, the option you have is to raise a personal safety order against that family member AVO. This can either be done through a solicitor or directly with the police. Upon the order being filed, your daughter will be served and required to leave the premises. There are various aspects to the order that do need consideration from a family dynamic as well as the personal impact on your daughter.The law is there to protect you and will come to your aid.If you would like to discuss this matter further by telephone, I welcome you to request those services.If you have any further questions, I would be pleased to answer those for you.Don't forget to leave positive feed back.Kind regards *****

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
