STBX has changed locks on FMH. It is jointly owned and some of my things are still inside. Have tried to do things nicely by asking for acess through a solicitor''s letter but got no answer and when I did go round he was there and ended up slamming door in my face. He has now changed the locks. How would I go about getting the court to allow me access or to require him to give me a copy of the keys? Would I do this through the family court or is there another way?

I think you are entitled to get a locksmith to come and open the house, I would check with the police.

I think you are right, but locksmiths are not cheap. Can locksmiths open well-secured doors without having to kick them in?

I used a locksmith and he got me in without damaging any locks at all. I did inform the police what I was doing first, just to cover my own back. Hope this helps
