Thank you; I am sorry to hear you are having marital difficulties. One party cannot unilaterally "kick" the other person out of the jointly owned marital home; in order for one party to have the exclusive use and possession of the home, this requires a court order to that effect (it's referenced as a move out order). Some separated spouses will apply for temporary relief while the divorce is pending- ie alimony, determination as to payment of debt, move out orders.
But absent this, both parties are equally entitled to the use and possession of the home.
If one party secures a restraining order, then the judge may also (and typically does) order one party to move out of the house.
If the parties are somewhat amicable, they may draft a separation agreement deciding who will have use of the home, who will pay what bills, etc, to help with the issues until a judge may decide what is appropriate.
Since Kentucky is a "no fault" divorce state, if one party voluntarily moves out of the house, this does not affect property division down the road.
