My uncle would like to enter the home to retrieve his personal items (which he has receipts for). Can he hire a locksmith to help him enter if the locks have been changed? Can he bring a police officer along?
My uncle has been separated from his wife for 8 months. He still pays the bills (cell phone, cable, water, electric) and has a valid license with the address of the house. His mail also still goes to the house. The house mortgage is not in his name. No one has filed a divorce, and there are no children involved. He is unaware if the locks have been changed, or if his personal items are still in the house.
