REMEMBER TO RATE POSITIVELY BEFORE EXITING
THIS IS HOW I GET A CREDIT
The small claims has no jurisdiction over evictions ; it needs to be filed in your civil court, the Superior Court, landlord tenant division.
This is the process to evict someone.
Failure to follow the process would result in the tenant being able to sue you .
If you file the eviction proceedings it will take just a couple of weeks, but it needs to be done, this is the legal way to do things; other things can work out but are not the proper process.
You can hire an attorney and sue her in the Superior court at the same time for past due rent and attorney's fees and costs.
