September 2011, my husband and I separated, their were domestic violence issues, all charges were dropped, we decided to agree to civil restraints and made our custody arrangements and also agreed to stay separated. In June 2012, we decided we wanted to try and work things out. I gave up my apartment and moved in with him. Last night he kicked me out, I had no place to go, he took my phone, keys to the car and apartment, and called someone that I was dating while we were separated;to come and get me. When I went outside to tell my ride to leave, my husband locked the door behind me, and refused to let me back in the apartment. I was 1 am when he did this, the kids were sleeping and he wouldnt give me the car seats, to take the kids with me.
Absolutely not. You absolutely have every right to continue to reside in your marital residence.
You should go to the Family Court in the county that you reside and file an order to show clause seeking the return and entry into your home and custody of your children.
