If there are physical altercations, the police should be called and a restraining order should have been filed, which would have kept them out of the home and possible facing criminal charges. If they live there and you want them out, you do have to evict them. It is a civil issue and you need to go through the courts, as the police stated. They have no legal right to your possessions . If you want them out and they are refusing to leave, go through the court and have them evicted. If they fail to leave, the sheriff would come and remove them and their stuff.
