Legal Question in Family Law in Minnesota

My brother's wife just kicked him out. She has a daughter from a previous marriage that he was in the process of adopting, not completed. She claims to have an attorney, and is telling him if he comes back home she is calling the police. What should he be doing? There is no cheating or violence involved.
