You are not able to take their conveyed interest away. Any tenant in common or joint tenant may end the cotenancy by suing for partition; the court will grant partition automatically, with no need to show cause. The court will either grant partition in kind or partition by sale (physical division of the land) or (division of proceeds from the judicial sale of the land). In addition, a cotenant can always end or sever the joint tenancy merely by conveying her interest to another person (udsually by sale)

You should go to your local legal aid clicnic about filing the proper papers with the court.
