    Answered . Yes. If she refuses to leave you will have to evict her. The Orange County Court has an eviction packet you can buy at the courthouse. If you do not think she will hire an attorney, then you can probably do it yourself. If she gets an attorney and you make a mistake in the process, you could end up paying the attorney's fees after the eviction is dismissed.
