I live in a blended family for 10 years that is very one

I live in a blended family for 10 years that is very one sided and inconsiderate to me and my daughter. My wife has made life very difficult for me and won't accept that I have a child and acts mentally out of control, emotionally irrational and abusive for 10 years. Meanwhile, she still has her 25 year old son living off us in our 2br apartment, a 20 year old son who has a 4 year old child who takes over our house as well. She puts them above everything and let's them take over our apartment, but she acts jealous and irrational and complains about my daughter, one Child of mine, who is respectful and stays to herself living with us. I am totally convinced that she has a mental disorder and shows no empathy for me or anyone except her children. I want to serve her with a divorce, but if we're still living together she will make a scene and turn her kids against me. She freaks out and the police will be called, she makes scenes and begs me not to leave and promises to change, but it only takes a few days for her to start saying bad provoking things to me. I need to get me and my daughter away from her. Is there any way I can have family court order her and her kids to leave the aparrment? Her 25 year old son is not on the lease and neither is her 4 year old grandchild who destroys our home and even brought bedbugs in the house and she wont even stop him from coming over for a couple days to exterminate. Very codependant. They're not suppose to be here. I think it is fair that she should leave with her kids, especially because there not on our lease and I never agreed for the older son or grandchild to live here, and being as I accepted her kids, but she could never accept mine, and her kids caused 10 times more problems. Can the courts help with this? I'm finding it very hard to find another apartment, and it's not fair how she let her kids and grand child take over the home and have no rules.
