If you are wondering if you can change the locks on your doors before you are divorced, you must keep in mind that the judge or jury will know about your actions later. If your spouse has already obtained a Temporary Restraining Order and had it served on you, then changing the locks could mean that you end up in jail if you are found to be in contempt of court. If you have not been served any papers and are still married, then you are both entitled to do what you want with your marital home as long as it is not a criminal act.
Changing the locks really depends on your individual situation. If domestic violence is taking place and you are seeking protection, anyone can understand why locks were changed. If you are uncertain about whether you should change locks to keep your spouse from entering the marital home, you should contact a Las Vegas domestic violence lawyer for legal advice. Your actions immediately prior to filing for divorce are important and can play a role in determining child support/custody. A Las Vegas divorce lawyer has the knowledge and experience to give you accurate legal counsel and to initiate the right legal action on your behalf.
