I have a tenant who owes two months rent but just had a newborn.I've been told that a tenant with a newborn can't be evicted in Florida.That it is a long process(a year ) .Is there any truth to this .Hoping for a good outcome but i can't wait a year to get paid either.Thanks.
There is no truth to that rumor, the eviction process is the same. I suggest you consult with a local attorney if you are not sure how to proceed.

After practicing 26 years in South Florida, I have never heard of that urban myth. The law in Florida has precise steps to be taken to evict a tenant. You can review my legal guide on Avvo regarding the eviction process for an overview of the steps. Good luck.
I agree; there's no truth at all to that. if she is not paying the rent, you can evict just like any other tenant
Hope this helps.

That is not true. Post a 3 day notice and proceed with eviction if she fails to pay.

No idea where you heard that but nothing even close. The choice to have a child is your own, not landlord's problem.

What does a newborn have to do with eviction laws? Of course. Hire an attorney to do it so we can get it right first time

Unless the LL is the father - the tenant can be evicted very quickly for non-payment of rent. THAT is why landlords need to hire lawyers for evictions as its NOT a DIY project regardless of what you get told.
