How can I get my spouse, who has exhibited violence, removed from the home?

The way in which to have a spouse who has exhibited violence removed from the home is to file a petition for a junction for protection against domestic violence, which can be done by going to the clerk of your court and file a sworn petition, which the court will look at, and within twenty-four hours, if the requirements of the statue are met enter a temporary injunction. Then there would be a hearing within ten days on that injunction. That would, the temporary injunction, if granted, would order the abusive spouse to vacate the home immediately.
