If you are now divorced and a Judgment of Absolute Divorce was entered WITHOUT claims for equitable distribution OR without a Separation Agreement and Property Settlement (SAPS), then the home vests based on title.
If the home was addressed in an equitable distribution order or through a SAPS, that will dictate who has it.
Please go see a family law attorney in the State of NC and show them the documents you have before you act on your own. It is possible that he could have you criminally charged with domestic criminal trespass if you attempt to re-enter the home. So make sure you have all the facts and good legal advice.
I do not have enough information in your question to properly advise you.
