After having a friend confront me about my partner's behavior, I realize I'm in an emotionally, verbally abusive relationship. My partner has what I call a "0 to 60 in 3 seconds" temper and I never know from one second to the next where or when the next crazy argument is going to start. I want my partner out of my house as soon as possible, but because she's moved into my apartment, and has been there for awhile, I can't just ask her to leave. Legally, in my state, I have to give her 30 days notice verbally or she can have me arrested. Even if I serve her with an eviction notice, I have to give her 30 days. I DO NOT want to live in the house with this person for 30 days during the transition. In a normal, day-to-day life her temper is all over the place, I'm scared of what she'll be like once she's been asked to leave. Yes, it's my apartment and yes, I hold the vast majority of financial resources and this should be easy, but the law doesn't make it easy. I'm terrified that breaking up and asking her to leave will be the thing that puts her over the edge into being physically abusive or destructive with my things. She drives my car while I'm at work and is in the apartment working from home all day with access to all of my belongings and both of my dogs. I'm so afraid of what her crazy temper could lead her to do. How should I handle this?
