Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Hello. I am in the process of evicting a family member, who has illegally set up a tenement in my backyard and living there. I'm in Las Vegas Nevada.He has made verbal and physical threats in the past. He is now making threats in retaliation for the eviction. He is constantly demanding money from my mother in law (his sister) and from me and my wife, otherwise he will make false reports...Such reports he has threatened us with are:- Reporting animal cruelty for our pets
- Reporting to the IRS for... Whatever, I don't know.
- Reporting to Child Protective Services for our kids
- Reporting Elder abuse (We take care of our grandfather who we live with and is 91)
- General lawsuits for random thingsWe have text messages he sends constantly. Money requests on Social payment platforms like Venmo etc.On August 2nd I have to file in court for the last stage of the eviction process. FYI... (Perhaps I can make a plea there or something?)But basically, what can I do to stop the harassment, and call him out on this blackmailing?Please help. Thank you.

I would focus first on getting him evicted and out of there secondary to that once you get him evicted you can definitely contact the police and make out a report for harassment and they can open an investigation. But first I would concentrate on proceeding with your eviction because you want to get him out. What other questions do you have based on my response?
Customer
The eviction may take another 30 days... I'm worried he may cause problems before he's out... My thought process is that I should address it before he makes problems. Would you still recommend waiting until the eviction is complete?

It's really up to you legally it really makes no difference My only thought was to not make him super upset while he still on the property you know? If you wait till after he's evicted if he were to show up you can call the police and have him removed right now you can't
