Im no attorney and dont know the laws of your state, but she does have a court decree with your signature stating she can stay in the home until she finds other residence.
I would imagine it is all on how the decree is written. It sounds pretty open ended, however, of you want to spend the time amd money, you can take it to a lawyer and back to court with the reasoning being that she has had sufficient time to find reasonable living accommodations and leave it to the court to decide, however, it may well be that by the time that is all said and done, February will be here and you will have wasted time, energy and money.
Is her new place available Feb 1st? If so, you may just consult with your attorney and have him draw up a simple document that she signs stating she will be leaving the residence on xxxxx date.
Your in a pickle for sure. Id definitely be calling an attorney as she could continue to drag this out if she chooses and as long as she has that court decree, if you change the locks or call the cops, its all for nothing, it is, at this time, her rightful residence........
Sorry, thats just my take on it.
