My question involves an eviction in: Los Angeles, California
I need to end a 2 year relationship with a woman who's not going to accept it and I don't know how I'm going to get her out of my apartment. She's emotionally unstable and I fear she could get violent and destructive when I end the relationship.
I rent an apartment in Los Angeles. The lease and utilities are under my name but from what I've learned so far is I'd have to give her 30 days notice and if she still refused to move out I'd have to go to court. I pay the rent, cable and about 80% of all expenses. She buys the food and pays for most of the utilities. In my situation, living under the same roof with my gf after breaking up with her won't be possible. She has serious anger issues and as I said earlier she could become physical and destructive.
I'm thinking of ending the lease on my apartment and moving out without her. I'd move out with 7-10 days left on my old apartments lease and after moving out I'd give her the news, leaving her 7-10 days to find a new place. She has an aunt who lives 10 minutes away and she could move back to her place.
This isn't the way I want to end my relationship. I still care very much about my gf and I'm worried about her well being and how this is going to affect her....but I can't be with her any longer. The relationship is too dysfunctional and stressful.
Finally my question...
If I move out of my apartment and only give my gf 7-10 days notice could she take legal action against me?
If I don't move what are my legal options to get her out?
FYI. In 2010 my gf was arrested and spent a month in jail for disturbing the peace. She was accused of threatening another woman with a knife. She also told me she got an ex boyfriend arrested too.
