    Evicting my Boyfriend
    I own my house in CT. I want my boyfriend to move out for various (and good) reasons. Since he has established residence in my home, how do I go about getting him out?

    Thank you.

    Does he pay rent? Define establishing residence?

    Have you simply asked him to move? If so, what was the reaction?

    Hello ct:

    If he's paid rent, you need to evict him. That'll take a few weeks. If you fear for your safety, apply for a protective order. That'll get him out tonight. If he's neither paid rent nor threatened you, then he's a trespasser and the cops will put him out. Or, you could change the locks when he's gone and put his stuff out. Again, if you think there could be a problem, let your local cops know what you're doing.

    Tell him to get out or you will call the police.its your house and your rules.tell him that if he lives under your roof,he has to live under your rules.if this doesn't work call the police.does he pay your rent?does he listen to you?if not he is not treating you like he should be.you are giving him food,shelter,water,love,and a lot of other things.you sound like an independent and loving girl.hoped his helps.thank you for writing and expressing your feelings to people you don't know.

    You need to give him a 30 day eviction notice if he has established residence. Residency usually means if he gets mail at that address. If you feel threatened by him, you need to get a TPO (temporary restraining order) and have it served on him as soon as possible. If you two have an agreement on rent, I would then take him to small claims court for his share of the rent.

    Did anyone answer your question? I am in the same situation. I am not sure if he has established residence here though or not. He has been here 1 1/2 years and does get mail here, however not one bill is in his name.. he has no bills at all only child support and alimony

    Hello 2:

    Duuuhhhh. I answered the question... You need to evict him according to your states landlord tenant law. We have a copy right here at the top of this forum on a sticky note.

    It's not difficult to understand nor is it difficult to do.

    excon: I am sorry I didn't see the answers before posting the question... I was just looking for some help. My focus is not all that good these days.
    I don't know if he qualifies as a tenant because he has never paid anything, there are no joint bills accounts etc.. On a few occasions through the 1 1/2 years he has lived here he has given me some money - but I also have paid his bills, way above and beyond what he has given me, before he went through bankruptcy. Then for 6 month he didn't work... when he does 95 % of his paycheck goes to his ex.
    I am trying not to involve the police because it will make things worse. A restraining order does not mean much to some.

    Hello again 2:

    It really won't matter if any of the bills are in his name. If he's paid any of them, he's a tenant. Plus, it won't matter even if he can't prove that he's paid any of the bills, because a judge is going to assume that he has - because, of course, HE HAS.

    So, he's a tenant, and you need to evict him.

    I understand you do not want to involve the cops. They're no help anyway - until after he kills you. A restraining order doesn't involve the cops until he violates it. It's a civil procedure.

    I would get one anyway, and see if he leaves. If you're afraid for your safety, you need to move until the eviction is complete. Then and only then can you change the locks.

    Be careful.
