I've been living with my fiancée for the past eight years and his mother the landlord is kicking me out for no reason and I have a 3 year old who is her grandson and also i have nowhere to go with my 3 year old what can I do
If the landlord wants you gone you will eventually have to move. The only issue is how long that will take.
You are probably entitled to a 30-day notice and then, if you do not move out voluntarily, the case will go to eviction court. Landlords cannot simply lock tenants out (it's illegal in Illinois). Typically an eviction case will take a month or two in the summer.
Though we strive to provide accurate legal information in our answers on AVVO, our answer should not be construed as legal advice and it does not create an attorney-client relationship. Our firm only forms attorney-client relationships by written agreement signed by both our firm and the client. Please seek an in-person consultation with an attorney immediately as almost all legal matters are time sensitive and failing to meet deadlines can result in adverse consequences.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. Attorneys who claim their profiles and provide Avvo with more information tend to have a higher rating than those who do not.What determines Avvo Rating?Experience & background
