Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
Is this in a divorce/separation scenario or a probate (deceased spouse) scenario?
No to all
Can you tell me what the context then of the question is?
If this is a marital home, then the spouse has rights to occupy until a court order says otherwise. Typically in a divorce or separation, that would be a temporary order or permanent order barring that spouse from entry to the premises.
Now if this is not a marital home (such as a vacation home, etc...) then the spouse has no occupancy rights if the property is truly owned by the other spouse.
Can the spouse with title boot you out for any arbitrary reason?
If this is a marital home, no.
That is, if this is the residence of the non-owner spouse, then the other spouse would have to get an order giving him sole possession of that property. ,
Only in very narrow situations where there's a prenupital agreement that would say otherwise, would the owner spouse be able to seek an eviction (but even then, that would require court action).
