This answer was rated:

I lived with my boyfriend for 4 years in san jose. I spent all of my 70k paycheck on him and his children. I helped with 1000. his mortgage and I paid all other expenses including property tax and braces utilities and groceries and then we broke up. In one year I purchased my own home and then he lost his. When my home got built he moved in with me about 1 1/2 year later, he has helped me with his portion of the expenses. He has lived here about 1 1/2 yrs I want to ask him and his two teenagers to leave. We have no written agreement at all. Do I have any obligation?

No, I have not. He stays in San Jose a lot and now has car problems. I had to help him out with them and now he needs to pay me back. I would like to have him leave in September after I am paid back. I want to be prepared.

Ok, in a situation like this, from a purely legal perspective, you are his landlord and he is your tenant under a month to month tenancy at will. In order to terminate this type of tanancy, since he has been living there over a year, you would have to give him a written 60 day notice to terminate his tenancy.
.
If the didn't move out within that period, then you would have to file a formal eviction action, called an unlawful detainer, with the Superior Court. You would then get an order of eviction from the judge and a writ or possession. Once you get the writ, you can have the sheriff physically remove him 6 days later if he won't voluntarily leave.

This person has convinced me that he wanted to get married but then wont go forward. He did this so I would file tax with him for the past three years. I am done with this. Will that give him any recourse.

Will that give him any recourse.

No not at all. How you filed your taxes in the past wouldn't serve to give him some type of legal rights to your home or prevent you from terminating his tenancy and evicting if he didn't move.
