Possible restraining order
Ask a Lawyerwhat's this?
QuestionCountry: United States of America
I need to know what legal action I can take in this case. I recently got engaged, however, my finance has two kids by another man. When she moved here from Maine, he came with her, and both names are on the lease to the apartment. Even though she has asked him several times to leave, he refuses, and since he is on the lease, it is our understanding that we can't make him leave. He told her yesterday that if she goes out at all for the next two weeks, he is going to change the locks to the apartment so she can't come back. If he does this, what legal action can we take, and is there any way to get him removed from the lease?
AnswerHe cannot lock her out--the police will escort her back. They need to end the lease or she could seek a restraining order against him keeping him away...
