My spouse moved in with us to a new house. We want to stay here as moving is costly. He has no income and does not contribute to finances in the home. Is there any way to make him leave? It is torment having him here when he has been hostile towards me for 5-1/2 years. I can't take it anymore.
You need to consult a family law attorney. Only under very limited circumstances can a spouse be asked to leave the home...whether they financial contribute or not.
