How do I get my spouse out of the house?
In Texas, you must go to court and have a judge order that person to move. Texas does not recognize legal separation like many other states. Therefore, you must file for divorce and file a document asking for a temporary order hearing. At the hearing, the person filing (hopefully the Petitioner's attorney) will ask the Judge to order the person to move. The judge will probably give the person a date to be out. Then the Judge normally also gives a date and time that the spouse is allowed to remove their belongings from the residence.
