Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Who owns the property where this person is staying?
If your husband did give him permission to occupy the property, then he can stay -- even if it is not with your consent -- since one landowner did give him permission. However, if the permission is not in writing and if your husband is nowhere to be found, then you could order him off of the property, and if he refuses, you could either charge him with trespassing and get a court order removing him or go through the eviction process and have him removed that way.
Either way, you're gong to have to get a court order directing him to vacate the property if he will not go voluntarily.
If your husband does maintain that he has permission to be there, the only thing you could do is file a partition suit to divide the property equally between the two of you....giving you and your husband your own individual tract.
