My Question is at the Bottom -
Here’s the leadup to it:
STBX kicked me out of house with a (false) Restraining Order a few months ago.
2 days before we saw the Judge, she with no warning dropped the DVPO, no apology, no explanation why she filed it.
I HAD BEEN asking her to sit down and wok out a Sep Agmnt for months before that.
She refused. I felt trapped that I could not leave.
Although I have come by the house a few times since to talk with her (by her request) and to see our kids,
I have never stayed overnight, nor ever said “I’m coming home or moving back in.”
I have recently gotten my own place and needed my bed, tv, dresser, and clothes.
We did not share a bed, and have 2 TVs, 2 Dressers, 2 Sofas, etc.
Because I know how she has acted in the past when I “defy” her demands, and know what an ugly scene she would cause in front of our neighbors, friends, and children, I had no choice but to wait until she was out for a couple of hours to get my things.
I did that last week, and she is screaming “How ILLEGAL it was” - what I did.
I pay for ALL the bills, including the Mortgage, and she does not work.
I work two jobs. We are still married, and there is NO DVPO in place.
It was Dismissed, it is Official, I have a copy from the Courthouse.
QUESTION: Was it Illegal, my going to my house, and taking my things, and even “half of the joint property” (sofa, tv, etc) ?
