Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Your husband can't force you out of the marital property short of a court order.......you can voluntarily leave, but he can't legally keep you away.
For instance, if he were to file for divorce and ask the court for a restraining order / protection order, etc., then you'd have to honor the order......but otherwise, you can enter the property and come and go as you please. If he won't let you in, you could take any action you want to enter -- call the police or sheriff's office and ask them to accompany you to enter so you don't end up in a domestic violence situation.
If you're afraid things could escalate to a physical altercation, that's likely the best option.
Yes, you could file for a restraining order or a protection order and have him restrained from entering the marital property or being in close proximity to you.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversations so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks again!
