You were common-law, not legally married? It's your name on title, not both? Give her polite notice, in writing like you were a landlord, that she is being evicted and this is her notice to move out within 60 days.

And of course, absolutely disengage your finances. Close all joint accounts. Right now. Move all your personal stuff to a room you can lock, or off premises until she's gone. Stay out of her way for the 60 days as much as you can, and wear a digital recorder at all times so that if you have to interact with her, it offers some protection against any false allegations of domestic violence.

See a lawyer, and follow the steps I laid out in the other thread. The intent is NOT to force undue hardship on her by cutting off necessities such as heat/hot water, rather it's to force her to settle with you because the living arrangements are forcibly minimal.

You should be able to evict her, a lawyer will be able to guide you through the most effective manner.
