  • How i can take he out of my house, I'm a tenant no de landlord

    I have a room-mate he doesnt want to move And he doesnt pay the rent any more

    Judy’s Answer

    You have no authority to remove the tenant since you do not own the property. Speak to your landlord about the possibility of filing for eviction. Without information about whether the tenant is responsible for rent or if you are both equally responsible, it is not possible to further answer your question. Bring all your paperwork to a landlord/tenant attorney fore a full discussion of your options and to receive legal advice geared toward you particular situation. It is very possible you are responsible for all the rent but without a review of all document, we cannot say for certain.

    The Secretary of State does not generally check for immigration status. If you have additional questions, you should consult with an immigration attorney and for that reason I am changing the practice area to attract those who can best answer.

    Judy’s Answer

    first of all, legal separation will not resolve your problem. Rather than speculate with incomplete facts, you should speak to a bankruptcy attorney as soon as possible. Filing for bankruptcy could affect your home in Illinois, but that should be discussed during a consultation with one or more bankruptcy attorneys

    Something is not right here. Why would one of your W-2s have a different Social Security number? If it is an error, your employer should fix it. If you are using 2 Social Security numbers, you have greater problems.
