What can I do if my spouse/partner refuses to leave the family home?

Separating is difficult enough, but living with your ex-spouse during the split can really exacerbate the situation, and in some cases, be unsafe. Ideally, if both of you can agree who stays in the family home, then all to the good, but in reality, this rarely happens between warring couples. So, what happens if you can’t agree? And what can you do if your ex refuses to leave?
