My boyfriend asked me to find break my lease and find a new place. He has been evicted in the past, so he couldn't put his name on the lease. But I have months of text where we were shopping for a place, found one. Moved in, I came home after a few weeks, he left all of his things here. Can I take him to court
This post is jumbled and makes no sense.
Sue him for what?!!?

If he's not on the lease sue him for what? Unless you have a specific text in writing him promising to pay 50% of whatever or rent you may be SOL here. Talking about renting a unit means nothing, as only your name is on the contract. You need to prove some other contract where he promised you to pay some portion of rent in writing as evidence.

If your name is the only one on the lease, your boyfriend cannot force you to move out, and even if you do and he remains, you would be legally liable for the rent payments and for any damage he caused to the unit. Bad idea!. You can file an action for unlawful detainer to force him to move out if he refuses to leave.

Not likely. This is simply the result of poor decision making and poor decision stacked on poor decision. If the "single mom" comment was intended to convey you have no money, then you won't be able to afford to file a suit let alone pursue one or ever expect to collect actual money. In the future you need to be much more descriminating in who you co-habitate with and the people you rely upon financially.

In a word, No. You are the only one contractually bound to pay the lease as you are the only one who signed the lease. If you want him out, then ask him to leave. If he will not leave, you may be able to sue him civilly for an unlawful detainer action.
