Most men who are verbally abusive seek to control others because of their own sense of helplessness and powerlessness, according to therapist and licensed clinical social worker Juli Orlov, in the "Psych Central" article, "In An Emotionally Abusive Relationship?
This is relatively simple if you have dated a short time and live separately. If, however, you are in a long-term partnership with joint finances and shared living space, ending things will be a little more complicated -- especially if your boyfriend does not want the relationship to be over.
According to the California courts article, "Domestic Violence," severe verbal abuse falls under the umbrella definition of domestic violence. If you fear that you or a child may be in danger because of your boyfriend's abuse, call immediately to report the situation. If warranted, law enforcement can request an emergency restraining order be put in place until the matter can be dealt with in court. For example, in California, an emergency protection order can be requested for 7 days, followed by a temporary restraining order for up to 25 days.
According to the same article from the California Courts, a permanent restraining order can be obtained through a legal proceeding.
Although you do not need a lawyer for this process, it is advisable. You will need to see your boyfriend in court and provide details of the abuse -- having help from a family law facilitator and domestic violence counselor will make the process go more smoothly. The order can restrain your boyfriend from having contact with you and from living in your home. If you have children, an order can be taken out for them, as well. Permanent restraining orders can last several years.
In some situations, it may be more pragmatic for you to leave rather than to try to have your boyfriend leave or obtain an restraining order. If you must leave, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline to locate the nearest domestic violence center. These centers can provide you with a safe and confidential place to live, food, legal aid, and potentially even a return to your home, and the removal of your boyfriend, if feasible.
These services are generally free for up to six months. As recommended in the "National Coalition Against Domestic Violence Safety Plan for Leaving an Abusive Relationship," be sure to bring important documents with you, such as your social security card, birth certificate, credit cards, and any documentation of the abuse, such as police reports. Although your goal may be to get your boyfriend out of the house, in some situations you may find yourself continuing with the destructive relationship.
In the "Oprah" article "Expert Advice on Surviving Abuse," family violence consultant Steven Stosny recommends examining whether your boyfriend is ready and able to make a change in his behavior.
If your boyfriend has a core value to love and protect his family, if he dislikes his behavior, and he feels better when he is emotionally connected to you, then he may be able to stop his abuse. In this instance, it is helpful to have the advice of a counselor to work through issues with regulating anger and anxiety, and showing compassion.
It may take a long time before you can trust your boyfriend again; support his growth by taking back your power and control, and refuse to tolerate abuse any longer.

Jan 30,PM. Can my boyfriend kick me out of the house? I moved in with my boyfriend upon a verbal agreement that I didn't have to pay rent or utilities since I was relocating from orange county to central coast and took over a half cut in pay and changing careers. I have been residing at his home for 9 months and have since gotten rid of all my furniture at the request of him to accommodate his home. Many of my things have also been damaged by him and are not replaceable. We are in the process of splitting up and he has tried to throw me out of the house with no where to go on several occasions.
In the process, we have argued he has become verbally abusive on a daily basis and has been physically abusive in the past which I didn't bother to report. I stayed away for a couple of weeks and no longer have a place to stay so I agreed to move into the front room to have my own space so I can focus on school and work while I save money to relocate back to orange county after I find work there.
I feel he is partially responsible for bringing me here and is now trying to leave me with nothing. I have documented all my expenses and difference in income and have asked him to meet me half way and help me financially so I can move out but he is refusing.
What rights do I have regarding our verbal agreement? If it is his house, he really can do whatever he wants with it. A verbal agreement isn't exactly a legal agreement written on paper.Remember Me?

Can he kick me and my son out without legal notice? We live in Michigan. Join Date Mar Posts 2, It has not been a law that's enforced but it had huge tax implications apparently. When I was still married and we first moved here, he was on the lease.
I filed for divorce and he left. Then when I renewed the lease they only had my name on the papers. Not sure how when he was supposed to sign something but oh well. Then we got back together after he went to rehab and he lived with me for a month and a half and then screwed up again to a point I called the police.
Before he got home, I was talking to them and they asked what I wanted to do and I said can't I just kick him out? He's not on the lease and pays no rent. He said no I would have to go to the courthouse and file that Nebraska does not have a time limit for how long someone lives in a place before they are a tenant.
Not sure how accurate it was but he got arrested anyway and went back to his mom's after jail. When I do search it, some other forums that's what comes up. He would possibly have to file through the court for you to be evicted.
If you guys are breaking out why would you want to stay? In all honesty though legally you two aren't allowed to live together in Michigan if you are an unmarried couple. An intelligent hell would be better than a stupid paradise - Victor Hugo.
Join Date Jan Posts 38, Quoting qwaspolkBut now that we've passed the one-year mark, signed a lease and moved in together, I don't really see him going anywhere, and thus this article came to mind. Many people jaw-drop at the fact that we took this major step and moved in together. We've heard everything from "You're so young! Don't you want to figure out if you're making the right decision as soon as possible so you can get out while you're still young?
I mean, you aren't going to have food-baby contests with your boyfriend, are you? That's just unattractive.
There IS such a thing as being too comfortable, and if you don't believe me, just try it and see where that leaves you. I don't care if you just drowned in Chipotle and are facing the awful repercussions. Keep that to yourself. I don't care how comfortable you think you are with one another. I don't care if you wrapped your discarded products in 10 layers of duct tape; the trash is your responsibility for the next three to five days.
You may think the fact that you hate showering is cute, but he, on the other hand, does not, especially when you're sharing a bed. Unlike your girl friends who like to compete for who showers less, this is not a conversation your boyfriend wants or needs to hear.
It's especially concerning when he knows how frequently you exercise. The key to living together without hating one another is to do your own thing. Just because you are now cohabiting does not mean you need to spend every waking second together. The best and worst part about living with a boy is he is always hungry.Love Advice - My Boyfriend Kicked Me Out!! #JJTalks

Can my boyfriend/child's father kick me out?
Don't feel like doing laundry? Neither does your boyfriend. But if you do it together, you'll both get it done. Same goes for food shopping. And even the gym.
How to Get a Verbally Abusive Boyfriend Out of Your House
The issue with living with just one other person is he knows exactly which mess is yours and which is his. There is no shifting of the blame or pretending you didn't do something, which is unfortunate because you really don't feel like emptying the dishwasher.
This morning, I woke up to a snapchat that was sent to me by my boyfriend two hours ago. By Ashley Fern.
My Parents Kicked Me Out for Being Gay -- What Can I Do?
I've been here a little over two years. When I moved here he said that all I had to do was be a homemaker and take care of the house. But in the past when we've struggled with bills I've sold some collectibles of mine to help our situation. For the most part however I've cooked, cleaned, helped manage bills, found roommates on craigslist to bring in more money, kept track of our roommate's rents, dealt with the mortgage company, etc.
Recently we've been getting into arguments and he says things he doesn't mean. He told me not to clean anymore and so our other roommate does it now to get free cigarettes from my bf. My bf has schizophrenia and has mood swings but so far we've always gotten through it. They hear an argument, my boyfriend tells them it's all my fault, and they only listen to his side.
He drags them into our business and takes away all privacy because he doesn't trust his own decision making process, so he says. He said it was up to them when he was angry. The day after he regretted that because he told me "I still want you here, but it's too late.
I don't want to undermine my friendship with our roommates. We all played rockband together. But then as luck has it they all said I still have to leave as planned by them 2 weeks ago.
My problem is that all my stuff is here. He's only going to pay for a bus ticket. My bf and I have a dog that we adopted together which I guess he will keep, but my parents also let me have their dog.
How am I supposed to get my dog back to Michigan on a bus? My parents will be furious if I lose our family dog to these awful roommates. From what I've been told they can't kick me out unless they get an official written eviction notice that they have to pay for at the courthouse. But the roommates keep telling me that if I don't pay rent they don't need an eviction notice and they'll just have a cop come take me away if I refuse to leave.I have lived with my two children's Father for 15 years, never married.
The first house we lived in we purchased together. He has two mortgages, one he pays, the smaller one I have paid since the first month, 5 years ago, which is automatically withdrawn from my account. Before I purchased a new car a year and a half ago, I paid all the small bills, he paid the larger ones. Now that I have a car payment and the insurance is higher for full coverage, I can't afford to pay some of the smaller ones.
In the meantime, he was laid off of work, collecting unemployment, and doing jobs on the side. About 2 weeks ago, he "broke up" with me saying he wasn't happy, found out it was because he was cheating and he feared a mutual friend would tell me.
Can he just "kick me out"? He knows I have no money, but is trying to force me out. I can not even afford an attorney right now because we always lived if he needed money, I gave him what I had, and vice-versa. He hasn't helped me out in over a month. I believe that he will attempt to either take the kids because I will have no home, and I can't provide a home at this moment for them. My children are my world, I am the one that takes care of them, and have taken care of them while he is out all the time.
He can kick you out, he does need to give you 30 days to leave though. He can not kick out his children though, they can stay. Until you are settled into a new home the best place for your children would be in the home they are familiar with and their father.
As a loving mother I am sure you want what is best for them, and staying in their own home vs staying in a homeless shelter is a no brainer. You are not married to him, you have no legal claims to his home and property, as you state, NJ is not a common law state. An attorney isn't going to be able to help you, it is not like you are getting a divorce and have to split the property, what is in your name is yours, what is in his name is his.
You of course will have to work out child support and custody, but hopefully you can do that on your own without attorneys, everyone is better off if you can do that. U have did all u can do as far as the father is concerned. Do not notify him anymore as far as your previous contact since u have informed him of the baby sit and document that or print your questions to yahoo answers so that u can prove that u did the right thing with notifying the baby's dad now u did all u can do and until a judge would require or place an order on u to keep providing information I would just leave him alone he knows where the baby is at and his condition again u did the right thing now it is time to stop worrying about the father and worry about yourself and your son and buy the way Congratulations and Happy Mother's Day 2 u!
Do not try 2 contact the father any longer and if he wants 2 c his son he knows where he is at and I believe he will only try and use the child to his convenience do not allow that 2 happen try to leave a sleeping dog sleep and just move on with what u got 2 do 4 u and the baby! Then deal with him when he starts to act up. If you're not married, he can kick you out of the house, but he can't necessarily kick you out of the house AND keep the kids.
A court would have to decide who keeps the kids if HE wants to take you to court, but guess what, my friend? It's always obvious who the mother is.If you do decide to help out an adult child by allowing them to live at home, be sure to set firm guidelines and help them create a plan to get out on their own.

Whatever the reason your adult kid has moved back or is still at home, it is time to sit down together and come up with a plan to move forward.
First, try to set an agreed upon time frame. Leaving it open-ended may lead to resentments down the road. Even a vague idea is better than nothing. At the very least, set a definite time to re-evaluate like six months or a year. Next, decide together what is expected from the child.
Hold each other accountable. Decide together how the combined household will deal with finances. This will vary from family to family and depend on circumstances, but as long as everyone is on the same page, it will be easier if it is decided upon right away. Make a copy for each of you, so everything is spelled out. That way, if one of you breaks the rules, the other can hold them accountable. Just letting things slide can lead to major resentments and hurt feelings.
Leaving everything unspoken or not confronting issues can cause a major rift in families. You were only trying to help, but just letting your child mooch off of you indefinitely will only lead to resentment. For most parents, it feels pretty good to be able to help your grown children in a time of crisis. Letting them move back home may seem natural, and by setting firm guidelines from the beginning, you can reconnect and grow closer until it is time to consider the reasons to kick your adult children out of the house again.
