What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Hamburg, NJ
My girlfriend of 2 years has been living with me in my townhouse for just about 1 year now. She has a 4 year old daughter (from a previous marriage) who also lives in my house. Over the past 8-9 months our relationship has diminished drastically, to the point where we can barely be in the same room together. We got engaged back in February and broke the engagement off in July. We fight constantly and just can't get past it. She has said she is going to move out, but never does, she doesn't even look for a place. I have now told her I want her to move out, but again, she isn't doing anything about it.
I own the house and all of the bills are in my name. She doesn't pay rent, although she pays a couple of the bills (phone and gas). She does have her mail delivered to the house and her daughter is in the Hamburg School System (pre-k).
What rights does my girlfriend have in this situation? What rights do I have? Do I have to give her notice to move out? If so, how much notice and how should it be given, ie- certified letter, attorney letter, verbal etc?
Can I pack her belongings and move them out? Should I contact the local police to make them aware of the situation? Any help is greatly appreciated.
