A: You could charge her with criminal conduct, but the police might well figure that since you are still married she could have some sort of defense to the charges. So you should get an order in the dissolution action providing that she stay away from your residence.
Bruce Alexander Minnick agrees with this answer
A: Lawyers are very intelligent and highly trained professionals--but we are not soothsayers; nor do we do crystal balls.
Therefore, we are constrained by a fundamental law of the universe (no one can foretell the future) and unable to opine on your current dilemma. The only way you can be 100% sure is to do what you want to do and then wait for whatever happens; or not wait?
File for divorce immediately.
