In my experience you cannot get your husband out of the marital home unless there is domestic violence, a PPO, or you file for divorce and get a court order. Merely being the titled owner will generally not work. A judge hearing the eviction will probably instruct you to file for divorce. For more info., please contact my office at (248)8513171.

The house is likely considered marital property at this point - it all depends on how long you have lived there and who pays for one. You can get a temporary order regarding your living situation if you want him out (along with a temp order for child support, custody, etc). I suggest contacting a family law attorney and having him handle the matter.
