I am trying to evict my sister in law from my rental property. who is in the process of getting divorce from my brother, my sister in law divorce lawyer filed a motion to consolidate my eviction case with their divorce case. accordingly to their claim my brother threaten to evict them to demand his term. I am not sure if that is correct or not. and i have no knowledge of it, but judge granted the motion to them. i talked to judge and he said he is not dismissing my case, it is better if both cases heard by the same judge, my question is. How long this is going to take ? it means until my brother case is not final, I am not able to evict my sister inlaw from my property? i had month to month lease(no lease) . it seems they got the approval because they are not behind on the payments. what are my option now? I am afraid that she will delay the case as much as possible to stay in the property. is my eviction case completely tie to my brother case
what are my options ?
Consolidation means the case file is combined with the other file. It is not bound to take the same length of time. You act to protect your interests, not sit back interests, which haven’t changed. You should at least consult a lawyer because managing the litigation is now more complex.
Give your sister-in-law a thirty day notice at the beginning of the month. After that go through regular eviction proceedings in the case before the judge for that procedure. You may want to retain the services of an attorney that handles evictions, they can get around any stall that the divorce hearing is trying impose.
