Disputes within a family or household can be emotionally draining, physically injurious and financially difficult. Many times people ask Officers, “can I make my spouse/family member/adult child or other person leave my house?” Officers are not lawyers and may not give legal advice. Persons who are living in your house may have gained the right to live there until they are ordered to leave through a legal process called an eviction. Because evictions are a civil matter (a matter that would be settled in a non-criminal court), you may want to consult your private attorney or seek assistance through the Justice of the Peace Court that is nearest to the residence. An Officer’s duty when dealing with civil matters is to preserve the peace.
When you contact an Attorney or Justice of the Peace Court regarding an eviction, keep these things in mind:
