I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
What's relevant here is whose name is ***** ***** title, not just the mortgage. If you issued a new title when you refinanced that said you're the sole owner of the property, then she's legally considered your tenant and you can ask her to leave by serving her with seven days written notice prior to the end of the month. N.C. Gen. Stat., Section 42-14.
If both names are ***** ***** property, you can file a Petition for Partition, which would mean that, if you can't agree, the judge would order the property sold and the equity split equally between you. The judge can't say that one of you gets to stay and the other has to leave if you both want to be there, because you have equal rights to be there. Note that in this scenario, she can't make you move out without a court order, either.
