Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
If the girlfriend is listed on the lease, then she will have to be in material breach of the lease in order for the landlord to have the legal authority to have her removed. Take a look at the lease and any provisions therein that allow the landlord to remove someone for conduct detrimental the the facility and its tenants, for breaching the peace, etc. If there is language in the lease which approximates her conduct, then you and the landlord can have her removed.
Moreover, you can file a restraining order against her and have her legally removed from the premises. If the temporary restraining order is later converted into a permanent restraining order or injunction, then no matter what the lease says, the landlord would have grounds to remove her from the lease.
So, you have two options: Explore the language of the lease and see if there is anything that would give the landlord the right to remove her, and/or file a restraining order against her on behalf of yourself and your child and have the landlord remove her based on those grounds.
