    I have asked my girlfriend to move out but she won't leave. She doesn't pay for anything. The house is in my name. Her nephew has been staying with us also and she has temporary custody of him
    She is broke.
    She says that I cant kick her out or have her stuff removed. What are my rights?

    Go to your local courthouse and ask about the eviction process.
    If you force her out or remove her property you could give her reason to sue you.
    This is a risk you take when you allow anyone to stay in your home. It does not matter that she doesn't pay rent or any other expenses.

    An eviction is something you could do yourself, but a lawyer could make it easy for you.
    Just know that your lawyer can't force her out either.
    If the reason she is refusing is because she can't afford to move then consider helping her find a place and assisting with the move. Make it easy for her and she might cooperate.

    Just so you know, OP, you'll have the EVICT the woman and her nephew.

    So, two evictions must be done in your case.

    Avoid making any side deals, because these critters have shown they are unreliable, untrustworthy, and dishonest.

    Start the eviction ASAP, and don't be tricked into dropping it with a sob story about I need just two more weeks, then I'll leave.

    If you have any valuables, remove them, until these deadbeats are gone.
