If you have breached your lease with your landlord in any form, such as not paying rent, then the landlord under the law has the right to go through the legal process to evict you even if you have a minor child under one month old.

The best way to try and resolve the situation is to try and enter into a written agreement with your landlord to resolve the situation to avoid an eviction such as making weekly payments to catch up on what money may be owed for back rent.
