Hello, my name is Peter and I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
I'm reviewing your question and will revert back to you shortly.
OK. You can't be locked out of the marital home. If the locks were changed without your consent you would be entitled to return with a locksmith to gain entry and change the locks again yourself - and then you would simply give her a copy of the new key.
I hope this assists?
Whilst you remain married you have the right to occupy your family home.
I would suggest that you make an appointment with a local solicitor to ask them to write to your wife, if you do not agree to moving out at this stage, setting out your proposals.
Yes, she can move whoever she likes in whilst you are still there I'm afraid. I didn't realise this was the key issue for you, apologies.
You both retain the right to live there and invite who you like into the property.
I hope that clarifies things?
If you have further questions, you can always come back to me.
In the meantime, if you could take a second to provide a 5 star rating (at the top right of your screen), I'll be credited for my time spent responding to your question.
