Canone co-owner keep someone that the other co-owner has invited over offthe property?

I own a house with my ex-boyfriend. He has started dating someone that I know and has been convicted of drug charges and has even had her children taken away from her. I have made it clear that I do not want her on my property. Is there any way I can make sure of that?

If you and your ex-boyfriend live at the house, and you each own it, then it would be difficult. If you live off the premises, it would be even more difficult. Unfortunately, unless you obtain a restraining order or an order to keep away from the premises (and the court grants one of these orders), there may not be much you can do if you continue to own the property. If your ex-boyfriend is leasing it from you or has a rental agreement with you or something to do with giving you monies for staying in the home, you might be able to have him agree to it by agreement but again, enforcement is difficult in this manner and he still owns the property, as well. You can contact a lawyer and see if anything can be done regarding some sort of trespass order but you need to discuss all of the dynamics of this situation (from who lives where and who can enforce).
