Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs, and I look forward to assisting you.
Has there been any sort of agreement between the spouses regarding exclusive possession of the marital home during the separation?
Has the wife moved out to her own residence?
Thank you for the additional information. Sorry for the delay. I had to step away to go into a meeting.
No, it is illegal for a spouse to bar the other spouse from the marital home, absent an agreement or court order stating otherwise.
The wife can go to the police and they should help her re enter the marital home.
Did you have further questions? Have I answered your question?
