A: I am sorry to hear about your situation, but if the home is in his name alone and you have no claim to the equity in it, he probably CAN evict you. You should consult with a local divorce/domestic law attorney to see if there may be more you could do, but this goes WELL beyond something that can be handled in a Q&A forum. Seek local legal representation!
