its my ex husbands girlfriend who filed domestic violence charges against him and a restraining order , my son who is 21 lives in the house and feels threatened because she is there,. can i have her removed from the home because i still am on the mortgage? and have legal rights to the home
This is a divorce attorney question. If your x owns the home, he can have anyone he wants in there. You have rights as a parent to protect your son. Seek counsel...good luck
The mortgage gives you no rights, only the obligation to pay. If the divorce decree gave your husband the house, you have no rights to decide anything in it.

That sounds like a serious question and one that should not be resolved through a three-minute Internet dialogue. If I am understanding things correctly, your husband has been removed from his own house due to a TRO issuance. Yet your son is still in the house. You need to schedule an in person consultation with an attorney that practices in family law and domestic violence.
More information is needed for any attorney to give you competent advice. DId your husband receive the house under a property settlement agreement? Is he still living there? If your son truly feels threatened by your ex husband's girlfriend he should call the police and have a report filed to document what is going on. You should schedule a consultation with a family law and domestic relations attorney to discuss these issues in confidence.
