It is much the same process to evict someone who is in breach of lease as it is to evict someone with no possessory right to live there. Your first step is delivering a 5-day notice. If she doesn’t leave voluntarily, you get a court date to evict.
If you are being threatened with physical violence you could seek a restraining order. But but advised, you could get served with a restraining order as well and be required to leave – even though you are the leaseholder.
