    Answered . How long has your boyfriend been in the apartment? Is he your roommate? If he will not leave on his own, you may have to bringing a proceeding in housing court to have him evicted from the premises. You should contact an attorney to fully discuss the situation. Also, if he is threatening violence and you are fearful, call the police.
