Q: Privacy from husband while waiting on divorce

My husband moved out about 5 weeks ago and has a new girlfriend. We still have about 3 more weeks until we can file for divorce. He is coming and going as he pleases and taking what ever he wants. I have no issues splitting property with him but I want to have a sense of privacy and security in my home. Last night he kicked the front door in because he can.

A: If you are threatened to the extent where his actions amount to domestic violence then you can take out an emergency protective order. In the alternative you can file and make a motion to restrain him in the divorce case.

A: If he has moved out, I would change the locks. He does still Co-own it with you so you would need to allow him entry at reasonable times upon reasonable notice..
