First, whether she had any right to be in your house would larely depend upon your divorce decree. You may want to read the portion which dealt with the house. And, you may want to consult with your divorce attorney for help with that issue.

Typically, all property issues are dealt with at the time of the divorce. If the house is not sold, but is awarded exclusively to one party, the other does not have a right to break into the house to remove property.

However, you mention that your ex-wife's attorney is the city's attorney. I hope you do not mean that he is the District Attorney (prosecutor). If so, let me know and I will discuss that point with you further.

I will be happy to clarify my answer if you need me to do so, or give you further explanation if you need me to do so.
