Thank you for your question.
You have two options. You can file an eviction action, or you can go back to the divorce court and ask for a contempt order from the court to have him removed from you house.
The quickest way is to go to the family court and ask for a contempt order for violation of the Divorce Decree.
It is most likely cheaper to simply do an eviction action.
You would do this by first sending him a written notice (since he is in your house you simply hand it to him), telling him that he is being evicted and must leave immediately or you will file a suit against him in court.
The next step in the Georgia eviction process requires the property owner to file a dispossessory warrant with the magistrate court. The affidavit includes the names of the tenant (him) and landlord (you), the reason for the eviction (he was ordered out by the family court - show the magistrate the order), verification of the demand and the amount of the rent owed plus the cost of the affidavit. The magistrate will have a summons served on the tenant within one to seven days. Tenants have an opportunity to pay the landlord the owed rent and costs to file the dispossessory warrant once in a 12-month period. The landlord cannot refuse payment from a tenant, but it must be made within seven days.
The tenant has the right to answer the summons. The tenant's answer must state the reasons that the landlord does not have the right to legally evict him from the property. The summons provides seven days to answer. Once the tenant answers the summons, the court schedules a date for a hearing.
When a tenant fails to answer a summons, the court issues a writ of possession
, which schedules the eviction between two and seven days after it is ordered. The property owner can file for a writ of possession with the magistrate at the time of the expiration of the dispossessory warrant. A writ of possession is ordered when a hearing is in favor of the landlord, as well. The tenant will have 10 days, after the judgment is entered, to vacate the property. The landlord must remove the tenant's belongings with a sheriff's marshall present.
