Hi Welcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
This is not easy as she is still a half owner and has the right to be there. You can do things like change locks, but this may be provocative. Perhaps the next step is to go to the Family Court and start the formal process of getting a court ordered division. Or you could perhaps get a family mediator to help facilitate an agreement which she would accept.
