Is he entitled to enter our home after signing the quitclaim deed?

Bear, DE |

My soon to be ex- left home for another woman on April, 2012 . Before he left signed the house deed in my name, and I filled for divorce. In the notarized paper it shows that I am the owner of the house, which is full paid. Almost , 1 yr later he comes back and wants to get in the house to live a "normal" life. He doesn't have a job nor he did/does pay child support. Does he have the rights to enter our home after signing the quitclaim deed in my name?

I did file the deed. It is notarized. The divorce is close to be finalized.

Did you file the deed?
Is the divorce finalized?

If you answered yes to both questions, then you may prevent him from returning to the home.
