My guess is that if she gets a restraining order against him, that he can’t enter the apartment. What else would she need other than that?
But from your perspective I think you’re wise not to involve yourself. You can’t simply remove a name from the lease without the other parties agreement. To legally remove someone from the apartment requires a legal process…perhaps an eviction. An eviction requires “cause”…which you may or may not have depending on what is contained in your lease.
Further, from your perspective, it’s better to have two people on the lease than one. I wouldn’t do anything unless they breach the lease…at which time I would evict BOTH, not one.
