You would have to file a divorce and request that the court grant you exclusive use of the house or request that no overnight guests be permitted in the house while the divorce is pending.  Your original petition would include this request.  You would then need to follow-up with a request for a hearing.  At the hearing, the judge would then make a decision regarding the appropriate remedy.
