It varies by county, however, EMERGENCY does mean emergency and most courts do accommodate the urgent situations. Fed Law also will mandate the emergent matter, i.e., drugs, fear for life, etc.

You have to go to the courthouse, and file for the eviction, and depending on why you want them out in such a hurry will vary in choice, you can get 3, 5, 7, and 10 days in most places. Hope this helps, good luck to you.

That is done through the courts and will take sometime because the court will have to see what is on the docket before your case and go from there, not sure the amount of time but it will not be quick, you may ask for speedy but trust me their speed maybe a month or more, good luck

First, what is your definition of an "emergency?"  All states have laws governing evictions and the procedures which must be followed to get them.  If you skip a step or fail to properly follow the step you will be spinning your wheels because if the tenant has a lawyer or does their homework, then you may end up paying them for violating their rights under Federal Fair Housing Laws.
