Moving back in to the house


My wife and I separated about 2 months ago. At that time, I moved into an apartment. I have been unemployed for a while and am currently enrolled in the local college. We were married for 23 years and lived in the same house for the last 18 years. She is responsible for the house payment. She also moved out of the house about 2 weeks later to move in with her sister. She is still making the house payment and the electric is still on, but she will not live in the house. My question is this… Can I move back into the house since she has moved out? The house is in both of our names, but only her name is on the loan.


At this point she still has the right to exclusive use and possession of the home and you may not move it without her consent.
