My husband moved out of our house 3 years ago and has a place of his own currently. I have lived in the family home with our kids (who are with him half time) since he moved out. Now he is threatening to come and go in the house as he pleases and has demanded I give him a key (I made him leave it when I kicked him out three years ago). I know it is technically still his house too - our divorce is not yet final - but can he do that, enter as he pleases, without my permission?
Oh, goodness. If I were you, I'd talk to an attorney about getting an order for exclusive possession of the house. If you've already filed for divorce, ask your lawyer about doing a petition for exclusive possession.
