Changing the locks on the house


#1

My wife and I have been separated for 1 year. She chose to leave the hosue. Can i legally change the locks on the house without giving her a key?

Not an attorney

Since she left without the intent to come back, you could have changed the locks on day 1. This is at least what my lawyer advised me.

Yes, if she has established a new residence, you can change the locks.
