How can I enforce the separation? He says he isn't ready to move out yet!
It is not clear what "papers" you are referring to of if they are or were part of a legal proceeding. Normally, to enforce a provision such as that, you would seek a court order. You need to consult with the attorney who prepared these papers for you.
You may have to send written notice of his default under the agreement and/or file a motion with the court to compel his compliance with that provision. An attorney could help guide you to what needs to be done next, so if he doesn't move out by Monday, consult with a local experienced attorney.

You can try to evict him in landlord tenant court which may be the civil court in your area of New York. Whether you will be successful or not will depend upon the wording and enforceabllity of the agreement
You should seek a consultation with an attorney to advise you as to the best thing to do next. You could of course verbally agree to give him a little more time with a specific move out date.
