The court has ruled there is no landlord tenant relationship, the squatter does not claim any rights or interests, the sheriff say's because "the Squatter receives mail there" he can not trespass him??? this is Florida Lee county
Have you not figured out that your lawyering skills are horrid and that you need to stop and give up the Google lawyering? The answer is YOU DON'T. You will need to actually hire a real lawyer, either a real estate lawyer or a landlord lawyer to address this issue properly. If the occupant refuses to leave, and as I suspect, may have a different story to tell about why they refuse to leave, you will need to plan on potentially spending a fair amount of money to battle them. THIS is why you have to be more diligent about property security and or decision making about who you let stay in property you own as it costs a bunch of money and hassle to get them out.

Retain a lawyer, it is clearly an unlawful detainer issue.

I agree with my colleagues, this looks like an unlawful detainer case, which is essentially an eviction where there's no landlord tenant relationship, but it does not look like an issue that you can successfully navigate as a pro se litigant. It really is worth it to consult with an experienced attorney in your locality to save you the headache.

The "court"? What did your lawyer say? if there is no L/T relationship, your lawyer should have advised you this is an unlawful detainer action. Not sure what could have gone wrong there.
On the other hand, if you don't have an attorney, and YOU just tried to "play lawyer" and actually attempted to evict someone on your own, despite the fact that you haven't a clue what to do - well, you made a mistake, it happens. But NOW you are looking for legal advice - on line? And on a basic Q and A forum? I have to tell you, for a property owner, you're not being ver smart at all. This requires a professional, I'm afraid. Suggest you consult with a good local attorney ASAP (before you make another mistake).
Hope this helps.
