If you are divorced and he was awarded that home, you could be charged for entering the premises without permission. Depending on the state, the charge may be breaking and entering or burglary. That generally means even walking into an open garage. WIthout entry to the dwelling, the only possible charges would be for trespass, but that would seem unlikely.

Expert:  Lawmoe replied 6 years ago.

If observed, it is possible that you could be charged with a trespass for being on the property or theft for removing a dental bill and paper from work. It would seem unlikely, but it is possible.

 

It is not something I would suggest repeating.
