If the housemate situation wasn't working out well, I was going to give him a month's notice to get out.
Be careful with this. I went through it with a friend I let stay with me during my divorce. A 30 day notice was all that was legally required, but if the person doesn't leave and has established residency, you do have to go through full-scale eviction proceedings.
Thanks, I appreciate it. It's not even an issue until the divorce is finalized (end of September) so I'm not stressing right now. I technically cannot force him to leave (without more court hearings) until then, since there's no basis for a restraining order.
Let me not be so vain to think I'm the sole author of my victories and and a victim of my defeats. -- ze frank
