Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.\

Here you would give them thirty day notice to quit and file for eviction to have them removed.Any relative, guest, etc that is living in your house is a month to month tenant.

Post the notice to quit on their door, take picture to prove service.You can hand them one too.After that if they don't leave you file for eviction(forcible entry and detainer) and get them evicted.The order is served by sheriff or constable and they are removed.Once this is done they can be arrested for trespassing if they return.

Here are the notice to quit forms.

I am so sorry that you are having to go through this.But you can evict them here by giving notice to quit and then filing for eviction.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
