You are not legally required to let her in your house, but if you refuse to let her have her personal belongings, it could look bad for you and make the judge rule against you on other matters. A good compromise if you don't want her in your home is to ask her what she wants and box it up for her and let her pick up the boxes from a neutral location.

If she goes in without your consent, there is probably nothing you can do about it if her name is ***** ***** title or the lease.

Do you have any other questions?
