Locks and their keys are designed to keep unwanted persons out of your home. But what do you do if someone you once allowed in but no longer want to have access to your home has a key? There are many circumstances that can create this situation, and if you find yourself in this situation, you can turn to Bill’s Lock & Key to help you regain your peace of mind.

The Breakup

  • When you are facing the end of a relationship, emotions can run high, and people can do things that they will later regret. One of these things is to re-enter a home where they no longer officially live.
  • Protect yourself and your valuables by rekeying the locks on your house. If you live in an apartment, you need to speak to your management.
  • If you want to be extra careful, you can install an upgraded lock system to your home.

A Separation and a Divorce

  • Changing the locks or getting your locked rekeyed can be a bit tricky when you are in the middle of the legal proceedings that accompany a legal separation ordivorce.
  • If you feel your safety is in jeopardy, ask your lawyer to file a protection order and to include your residence in the off-limits areas.
  • Also, ask for a temporary order granting you exclusive use of the house while proceedings are occurring. This may or may not be possible. If your spouse is not a proven danger and is a co-owner of the home, it is unlikely they will be barred from the home.
