What other facts do you need

There has to be a court oder to evict someone from a premises they are renting. Locks cannot be changed. If there is someone who can help her or go to court for her to obtain help to file papers to get the Judge to order a restraint of changing the locks, then that would be an option. Also, there are legal services for disabled person or possibly veteran legal services that may be able to help. Here is a number for legal services:(###) ###-####to call tomorrow morning to see how they can help.

Sorry bother you again but I forgot to ask if she's been living there for under 30 days does it make a difference

Here is what I found. Notice to Terminate a Periodic Lease - Week-to-Week: Landlord is required to give 30 days notice. Tenant is required to give seven days notice. I do not think under 30 days matters.
