I am considered a us citizen. My child's father is an American national. He acts like laws do not apply to him because of his status verses mine. I need help to understand because I am having problems with him and our children
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Pennsylvania
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: I have tried to get the police to have him leave but they act like they can't. They say when they run his ID it says do not detain do not arrest
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No that is all for now thanks

I am sorry to hear about the situation. I know that can be stressful. A person generally cannot be arrested by the police, unless he has committed a crime or there is an arrest warrant for him. If the house/apartment belongs to you, you can generally have him evicted. Unlawful detainer (eviction) is a civil lawsuit and the police generally would not be involved until the court order is issued. Clerk of the cour should have the forms available. Once the court approves the eviction and the writ of possession is issued, he can be forced to leave by law enforcement officials.

A tenant can generally evict a subtenant or a long-term guest upon 15 days notice. The police generally would not get involved until there is a court order approving the eviction.

American nationals are people owing allegiance to the United States, such as the people born in the outlying possessions of the United States, including American Samoa. U.S. citizens are also U.S. nationals. However, some U.S. nationals, such as the people born in the outlying possessions of the United States, cannot vote in the federal elections.
