I have an 18 year old daughter that is done with high school on May 20,2016. Can I legally kick her out of our house? She is a nightmare. Does not follow rules, uses drugs, brings friends over and get drunk in her room. Last weekend we had to take her friend to the E.R She was completely out of it. We found out the girls stole the alcohol from
Walmart and brought it into our home. We are afraid to have her in our home any more. She lies, steals, uses drugs and has sex with random people all the time. We live in Michigan and have no idea what to do.
If she is 18, you have no further legal obligation to support her. You can deliver a 30 day notice to quit to her. After the 30 days, you can file a summary proceedings action in the district court to evict her.

I agree. Just be sure you follow the proper procedures and you'll end up with a court order of eviction. If you aren't comfortable doing this yourself there are plenty of attorneys in your area who could handle this.
Please note that answering this question does not make me your attorney. However if I answer your question I probably handle the type of case you asked about.
You have no obligation to support your 18 year old daughter and if she is as out of control as you state, the sooner you put her out the better for you. Certainly you do not want liability if one of her friends dies under your roof from an overdose of drugs or alcohol.
