I live in Iowa city Iowa. Starting process of getting divorce but waiting to hear back from Iowa legal aid which could take2 weeks. My husband left me while on a drinking bungee and now wants to move back in to house. He tried last night without even asking or telling me, I found out bc I saw his bags. He tried locking me out of the house. I am scared bc I believe he is mentally unstable right now. I want to pack up things and leave the house but don't know how that will affect the divorce proceedings and division of assets. So my question is how should I proceed.

What's your question? No legal action has been taken so his rights are as good as yours. Leaving because you do not feel safe is a better reason than worrying about how it will affect the dissolution (it won't) or the assets (it won't). What's more important? Your life or your potential property rights?
