Customer Question

My father was arrest for false imprisonment, the women who filed the charges is still living in his home. I am his power of attorney at the moment. Should I have her evicted before bailing him out of jail? Won't that be the only legal way to make her move out?
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Georgia
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: As far as eviction? Or criminal charges?
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: My father was charged with false imprisonment and is incarcerated. I have filed eviction already also.

Yes, an eviction is the only way to force her from the home in any reasonable time period. However, you are not suppose to file a lawsuit yourself even using a POA. Only an actual attorney/lawyer can file legal papers on behalf of someone else and pursue the matter in court. Technically it is against the law for you to represent your father in court. The easiest resolution to this is to have an attorney step in and take over.
