I'm afraid it's very difficult to understand your situation from your writing. (Please see this Guide: http://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/five-tips-for-how-to-ask-for-legal-advice-on-avvocom .) I can tell you that, if you've been paying rent to live in a place, you're entitled to 30 days' notice to terminate the lease - or 60 days' notice if you've been there for over a year - whether or not there's a written lease agreement. There is a possible exception for domestic violence claims, however. Ultimately, if you're going through a divorce, or eviction, or restraining order matter, you need to consult with an attorney in private for guidance. There's simply no way to totally understand your situation and advise you on exactly what to do over the internet. You can call the Oregon State Bar for a free referral at 503-684-3763,

If you have never paid rent and do not have a landlord-tenant relationship, that may be a valid defense to any eviction proceeding, though they will likely be able to have you removed eventually if they jump through enough hoops. Thus it is only prudent for you to start looking for an alternative housing arrangement. You may also want to review the entire matter with a local landlord-tenant attorney if anything is filed in court. Good luck.
