Can an ex-girlfriend be evicted if there was a domestic violence case charged against me?

It’s my house and there was never any physical contact. She says that the prosecutor told her that I can be kicked out at anytime and that I cannot force her to leave. I’m worried what to do here since she keeps threatening to have me removed if I don’t agree with all her demands.

If your former girlfriend is residing in a home that you own an is not a tenant, you can evict her with giving her a thirty day notice of eviction. If she is a tenant, you need to carefully read the written lease you have with her as to its terms and conditions to see a basis for a possible eviction.

If she is on a month-to-month lease, then you give her a thirty day notice of eviction. She is being able to stay in your home by threatening you with criminal prosecution. I suggest that you consult with a landlord tenant attorney about your situation. Good luck.
