Needless to say, to expel your roommate, you are doing the appropriate thing. The law is on your side. You are the leaseholder and she misinterprets her rights as a roommate. It does NOT entitle her to the apt. You are severing ties by having her served. Even if she doesnt physically accept the papers, as is her right, after three attempts of being served by a court processor, it will be considered a "nail and serve". Which carries the same legal weight as if accepting. Try to get her served when she will be home, at her job, etc. You pretty much have to pay for this service. If she's not home, let them place it on her door. Hence, she could disregard notice, but its still legally binding. You just have to ride the wave until she is completely moved out, either on her own or by the sheriff. As for physical threats, definitedly get an order of protection or call the police if she physically harms you. That will be strikes against her if she chooses this route.
