This is strictly legal information with no lawyer-client relationship ensuing.
Massachusetts does mot recognize common law marriage between cohabitants, so it could be as easy as evicting the man if he is paying rent by sending an eviction notice; if he is a guest all she needs to do is box up his possessions , change the locks and ask him no longer to enter the house and arrange for an alternate mailing address.
If she needs to go through the courts to enforce an eviction, she can file the paperwork with her local housing court, municipal court or District Court. This is only if there is a tenancy in place, which from your information appears not to be the case.
For any domestic violence with the evcition, she would need to contact the sheriff's department for support.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO RATE GOOD TO GREAT SERVICE BEFORE EXITING
