Eviction Help

Unfortunately, because you are not married your options are limited. I would talk to your landlord and see if he is willing to let you out of the lease. You may have to pay a penalty, but at least it would get you out of the situation.

My ex-girlfriend and I moved down here from New York in January. Our relationship was rocky, at best, when we got here, but it went downhill quickly due to the fact that she was not taking medications for her moods. To make a long story short, She hs refused to work since August of last year (shes’s an RN), has had ME arrested for abuse by lying to a magestrate, and is now provoking me and trying to get me to do something so that she can live here rent free on my dime. The landlord is no help as he has both of us on the lease. If I simply leave, then she will default and I will be responsible. I have called her therapist, the police department,. and no one seems to know anything that I can do to protect myself and MY home. I paid for this…every penny, and I am NOT going to give it up for someone who is lying, is lazy, and is looking to take advantage again.
