Can my spouse legally change the locks on our once shared home before the divorce is final?

Question Details: I'm currently going through a divorce. All paperwork has been filed, etc. I currently still live in the home. My soon-to-be ex came to the home while I was at work and changed the locks so that I could not get gain access. We verbally agreed on them coming to the home to remove the remainder of property just as they've done several other times during this separation. Is there anything that I can do? I'm now currently homeless and can't get into the house to get any of my belongings, etc.
