I want to separate from my boyfriend of 4 years. We have a son who is 3.Last year I purchased a home under my name only. I saved the down payment money on my own before we got into a relationship. I really want to kick him out because he is emotionally abusive. What are my rights here?

We have dealt with this situation a few times recently. If he does not voluntarily move out of the home, it is possible to go to court and get an order that he vacate the home on the basis of trespassing on your property. I suggest you book a consultation with one of our lawyers to discuss it in detail. We can help you with this problem.
