in the state of indiana can you kick someone out of your home at anytime


All states, including Indiana, have rules about this issue. Generally speaking, you cannot kick out someone at any time - a sheriff or marshall has to do it, after the person entitled to possession of the premises goes to court.

In some areas, there is an exception to this rule if the person has lived in the premises for less than 30 days.

even if this personisnt on the lease but has lived there for 3 months and has been reciving mail but doesnt pay rent because doesnt have job but cooks cleans and takes care of a child that also belongs to the lease holder

Yes, you cannot legally kick someone out on your own - an eviction proceeding has to be commenced in court. You can ask the person to leave, but if they do not, you cannot kick them out.
