In the divorce decree it says the ex will have access to the cabin only on designated weeks. She violates this constantly. If we put up a no trespassing sign and she still goes on the property when she's not supposed to, could she be arrested. She owns 1/4 of the place now that he and she both remarried. I'm not sure I have the right department to handle this inquiry. Thank you for your help.

The remedy is a contempt proceeding in your divorce case. She can be punished by the family court for the violations of its order. Her 1/4 ownership is a complete defense to criminal trespass I think. A prosecutor would likely have problems making the trespass charge stick.
