Removal of partner from my house.

Foolish man as I am, I made the mistake about a dozen years ago of allowing a young lady to move into my house as my "partner" believing she would be an asset to me and the children I had with her general usefulness..

Unfortunately she has over the years become increasingly unco-operative, abusive to the children we have had and very unpleasant to live with owing to her increasingly disorganised and irrational nature and constant screaming and swearing, usually at the children but occasionally at myself when I dare venture out of my room and protest..

However she abjectly refuses to leave my house although I have told her many times I can no longer tolerate her behaviour and that it is very damaging to everyone, especially our children.

I would like advice on how to get this woman out of my house.

I am certainly not "mentally equipped" to deal with her behaviour and it certainly makes me very unwell to have to live with it.

How old are the children? 

How old are the children?  Who will they live with? Are you married?  Does she own any part of the house or has she made any contribution to it?

children are aged between 2

children are aged between 2 and 11 years of age. We are not married and she has no ownership of the house nor has she contributed to it. She has made a terrible mess in the house and broken many things, but I have basically allowed her to live here and have not been able to do anything to get her to behave in a reasonable manner.

The children will be living with me once she has been removed from the house.

Has she agreed the children

Has she agreed the children will stay with you?  If not, you'll need to apply to court for a live with child arrangements order.

In the meantime, if you want her out of the property because she is being abusive to you and the children, you can apply to the court for an occupation order.

Thanks for that advice.

She has not agreed to anything and certainly has not agreed to leave. She is unfortunately impossible to reason with or even communicate with. Her attitude and behaviour are very disruptive and have even had her recieve a letter from the school solicitor regarding her abusive manner to the school teachers threatening to ban her from the premises.
I have to deal with her unreasonable behaviour all day long and more worryingly so do our kids.
She has had so many "last chances" but seems to think she has a right to behave like she does. I have been a bit of a soft touch obviously but can't go on like this if she won't change.

 

What is her problem

Was it her upbringing or does she have a drinking or mental problem? She perhaps needs help in one of those areas. Have you been down that route?
