Thank you for your patience. I’m sorry, are you asking what the role of the constable is? I am asking because I want to provide you with the best answer.

Is your name on the home?

Customer
Hi

Legal Lady Lawyer, Expert

If the police won’t help you, then you can file a petition in court. You are owner of the home and allowed to enter. You can file a complaint in court against your husband for locking you out. You would have to have the complaint served upon him and then you can ask for damages. You will likely want to hire a lawyer to help draw up the complaint for you. If you have no place to go, they may be able to file an emergency hearing.

Legal Lady Lawyer, Expert

Yes, it could. I can’t say how long. You can contact a local attorney tomorrow to see how long they believe that process would take.

Customer
if it is served and he still doesn’t let me in what would happen
Customer
What do you call that type of lawyer?
img

Legal Lady Lawyer, Expert

The judge would have to order that he allows you in. You can use a civil litigation lawyer to help you.

Customer
Ok thank you!!
Customer
If he still doesn’t what happens
img

Legal Lady Lawyer, Expert

He could be held in contempt of court if he doesn’t follow the judge’s orders.

Customer
if that happens do I contact my lawyer again
img

Legal Lady Lawyer, Expert

Yes, definitely.

Customer
Ok thanks
