Can a family with small Children be evicted in Winter months in Vermont?
It isn't against the law to evict them. I recommend talking to the landlord about the situation. Sometimes they are willing to work with a tenant to pay the back rent. I rent out several houses and I know that I am willing to work with most people especially if they are otherwise good tenants.

Having small children doesn't absolve him of his obligations to pay rent. Can he ask the landlord about a payment plan to get caught up? If he has been a good tenant, I suspect the landlord will be willing to listen. If he has been a PITA, the eviction may continue. Can he get a roommate or a second job to help get caught up?

sad to say that eviction papers have no regard to the weather or what season it may be. Yes, you can be evicted at any given time.

Yes, it's legal. A landlord's only concern is getting their rent money. They cannot be forced to rent their property rent free just because someone has small children. Sorry.

I don't know of any law that says this. Your friend signed a lease and he has to go by the rules or face eviction. Since he's now working again, he just needs to go to the leasing office and explain his situation. He may or may not have to pay late fees, depending on how nice the leasing office is, but at least he's making an attempt to pay his rent.

I'm sorry to say that is a myth that will not go away. It is legal for them to be put out at any time per a court order. I've seen people with children be put out just before Christmas.

Let them move in with you. Its not the landloards problem to house this family. The landloard still has to make the Mtg payment on the prop.
