Q: Me and my wife have been separated for a yr. She moved out,can she still come to the house whenever she wants?
We have been separated for a little over a year, she moved out and has been living in another County for almost that length of time with another man, can she just show up to our home whenever she wants even to get her remaining clothes or whatever else?? She seems to think she can just because her name is on the deed with mine. But I'm the one that's made every house payment on this place the last 4 years. And I told her we would probably just sell the place and split the money but she seems to think that she's entitled to the money her father put down on this place because he sold his other house that was going to be willed to her but it would look like it would be null and void since he sold it and did not have a new wheel made for this place when he lived with us
A: She would be entitled to come back to the house, unless there is a court order, saying she is not. If you are having issues over property, division and money, and her returning to the home, I suggest you hire a lawyer and file for divorce or if you’ve already filed for divorce file a motion in the case.
Timothy Denison agrees with this answer
A: Yes. She can bc she still owns the house. She is also entitled to the portion her father paid bc it is nonmarital.
