Rights after leaving home for separation... Morning all, quick question/scenario: I just moved out of our home to a friend's house. I am still paying 1/2 of the mortgage and other related expenses and my name is still on the deed/title of the house.
Unfortunately, my family nor my friend has room for all of my belongings. My husband was fine with this but now he's trying to give me a hard time. Do I have the right to go back to my house (as appropriate) to get clothing, etc.? He's threatened to change the locks and said that now that I've moved I need to take everything out of the house. I can't afford a storage facility because I'm paying my friend to stay at her house, and again am still paying some of the expenses at my home.
I've done nothing wrong other than to make a decision to live again and not be controlled or emotionally abused anymore. My feelings did not change overnight....it's been years of a downward spiral. Things were just never the same after my husband had a 2 year affair. He left the home for a couple of months, I allowed him to come back.
Unfortunately he took my love for him and commitment to the marriage vows as a weakness and he ran with it. Sorry I'm all over the place with this....thoughts??
