How do I legal have my child removed from my home.

Fords, NJ |

I physically get sick, heart pain, I start bleeding and I get sick every time my child and I are together. There are days that it's wonderful, but then there are days that I just can't stand the tension anymore. My child is 20 and doesn't pay for anything. I'm a single parent and can't keep supporting her.

  1. Assuming she is emancipated (in NJ that does not mean reaching 18). You may be able to swear out a restraining order and/or do an ejectment action. Not easy to do and advise you use an attorney.
    On my profile there are several legal guides. I recommend reviewing the following which may be helpful to you:
