If he won't leave voluntarily, then you may have to evict him. You can only evict him if his name is not on the lease or deed of the home.

You don't indicate whether you own or rent your home, or whether your live-in boyfriend is on the deed, the mortgage, or a lease. Assuming that he isn't on anything and that you own your home, or that you rent your home and you are on the lease but he is not, you could file an ejectment action to remove him from your home. Consult with an attorney to discuss the specifics of your case and your options.

Are you thinking about an eviction? Has he been violent with you? If so, you could file an injunction case.

You should pursue an action for unlawful detainer under Chapter 82 of the Florida Statutes (provided he has not paid any rent monies). This action is analogous to an eviction action but is used to remove unwanted guests/guests who overstayed their "visit". It would be best to obtain the assistance of an attorney. All the best.
