My roommate has physically assaulted me. I would like to have her evicted from our apartment, in which we have individual leases as I do not feel safe living with her, however I don´t feel that I should have to move since I am a victim in the situation. I filled out an incident report two days ago with an officer, but he has called me back today to let me know that the only option I have is to press charges and go to court, he will not simply have the incident documented for the viewing of my apartment manager so that I may take action to have her moved out. What should I do? How long would it take for the case to go to court? Would I have to continue to live with this individual who has hit me for the duration of the trial? Also will I be expected to pay court fees and get a lawyer?
