Have any legal proceedings started yet?
That is pretty well what I meant. But have you seen lawyers, or has there been any mediation attempts for example?
You actually don't have the legal right to change the locks. The reason why is that you both have an equal right to occupy the home. That is because the home is your matrimonial home.
However, if you applied to the court order granting you exclusive possession of the home you will succeed. The reason why is the court will say that she abandoned her right to occupy the home. Then you will be able to lock her out. And then, the police will assist you if she tries to get back in.
It seems to be that you best next step may be to retain lawyer who will threaten court and tell her that if she makes it so that you have to go to court you will also seek an order for your legal costs.
You are very welcome.
