A: Are there any orders from the court preventing you from being in the home? If not, the likely answer is that you can go back to the house. If the house has been the family home for the three years of marriage and there is not a court order preventing you from going back you have as much right as your soon to be ex husband. Of course, I recommend you speak to a family law attorney so that your situation can be discussed in further detail.
