Wife left home then got court order that I couldn't contact her witch has expired . Now wants a key for house does she have to get a court order if refused a key
Hi Thank you for your questionMy name is ***** ***** do my best to help you but I need some further information firstWho owns the house and are you still married to each other?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Joint owners going to go for divorce
Then I am afraid that not only does she have the right to return to the house whenever she wishes - she is entitled to break in if you do not give her a key
The best way forward is to try and negotiate this issue using Family mediation
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
