What steps can I take to get my ex-partner ( de facto) to move out of my home. Unfortunately, the police will not remove him as he has lived there for more than 2 years and thus has the equivalent of 'husband' status. I have a 16 year old son at home and we have both had enough of him and his verbal aggression, hostility. Fortunately, he is not physically aggressive although that would make it simpler in terms of getting grid of him. He doesn't pay rent and has no legal ownership of the house. I pay the mortgage.
