Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need you some further information first
How far has the divorce reached?
Very sensible to wait for the Confession statement.
I am afraid that your wife remains entitled to enter the property whenever she wishes - and is entitled to break in (as she has already done)
It would be best to give her a key and ask her for the common courtesy of letting you know when she will call in (although you cannot insist on it)
You can certainly ask for the costs of repairs as part of your settlement
I appreciate that this is not the news that you were hoping for but sadly it is the law as it stands
Please ask if you need further details
I am afraid that yes she could (as could you if the roles were reversed)
However if she continues to misuse this by removing your belongings then you could potentially apply for an order excluding her
Keep a careful diary - if she continues in this way you will be able to exclude her via the courts
