Can Your Spouse Kick You Out of Your House

Can your spouse kick you out of your house? No. If the particular property has been established as the marital residence then neither spouse can eject the other from it. You can actually break into the house as well in order get in.

If the Police are called they will tell you just what I said above. The police will try to diffuse the situation, however, and will want someone to leave so there isn't an incident. You don't want to create the tinder for a domestic situation resulting in a protective order.
