As of late doesn't help and we are not mutually on the lease together. Just I am. Gave a verbal 60 day notice to find somewhere else to live. Tension is high cause I am paying all bills by myself and just want her out.
Verbal notice won't cut it. If there is no written lease, then you have a month-to-month lease. You'll have to go through the eviction process to legally have her removed if she won't leave willingly, and the eviction process requires written notice among other things. Evictions are very difficult even for attorneys because if there is one little typo in one letter to the tenant, when you get to trial the court may force you to start the whole process over again (even if the other party fails to show up). I suggest you start with:
-the Landlord/Tenant handbook (http://attorneygeneral.delaware.gov/documents/llt_summary_for_tenants_022514.pdf):
-then you read over a bunch of JP court decisions to see where other people have gone wrong (start here and go backward through the years: http://courts.delaware.gov/opinions/list.aspx?ag=justice+of+the+peace+court);
-and you also should know the LaSocha v. Weir case pretty well (it involved a written lease, but it's a good guide for most of the procedural stuff: http://courts.delaware.gov/opinions/download.aspx?ID=116230).
