Absolutely not. Your husband has no right to lock you out of property you own without a court order. He would be violating the law. Each of you has the right to the use AND possession of the property until a court rules otherwise. You need to consult with an attorney ASAP. You could file a complaint and ask for an order to make him vacate the property. Husband's don't have that kind of authority over their wives in the United States.

Even if you're not an owner or you both rent the premises, if you are a resident, he cannot just make you leave. The law varies in different jurisdictions. Contact your local police department, state patrol. Or your local Courthouse. They will be able to tell you what the county laws are concerning what is acceptable for locking someone out of their home.
