You have an absolute right to return to the former matrimonial home whenever you wish - unless and until there is a court order stating otherwise.
Indeed if she leaves the house and locks you out you are entitled to break in if need be.
If you do return home then do be careful not to allow her to provoke you into any action she can claim is violent - it is all too easy for women to do so I am afraid
Please ask if you need further details
