Is this considered a legal question?Page 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
I don't know the law for your area but how did she end up with your personal belongings? I think that would make a difference as to where you stand.

Since she's being a bytch, I'd talk to the local police and see if they will go over there with you so that it's all on the up & up as to what is yours to take. Some places do that and some don't, but it's worth a shot to find out. Make sure you have a list.

Make a detailed list, walk over to your police station..call her on your cell phone and let the police listen in to her as she acknowledges the stuff is yours.....then hand the phone to the police to speak to her and arrange a time to pick it all up.....it's very simple......as soon as the police hear her talk to you and it is clear that she does have your stuff, she can be charged with "theft by conversion" if she keeps it or gets rid of it......or sells it

Do you have an inventory or receipts?


This is why you should videotape every sexual encounter. That way when you have to go to the police you can show them the tape and say, "See that baseball cap on the dresser by her left tit? Yeah, that's mine."

It is called do not take all your things to someone's house and expect them back. She may throw them away; depends what you did to her or if she is a nut case. Don't do it again. It will cost you more in legal fees in most cases.

OP, I'm sorry you lost your stuff. I agree, get help from a third party, LE if possible, and go over and retrieve what you are missing IF she still has it. She may have just thrown it out.

I had an ex who would just put all my things I had left at his house on my front porch whenever we had a fight.

Oh, and there is always keeping/leaving stuff as an excuse to continue contact.

Using someone's stuff as a weapon is not that uncommon.

You could probably file in small claims court if you have some relatively accurate inventory of the things she still has. From a monetary standpoint, unless we are talking about big dollars you will spend more money in court than you will get out of it.

Unless something is massively expensive or carries some huge sentimental value to you, you are probably better off kissing it good-bye.

Not fair, not right, but realistically you just need to put this behind you and move forward.

It is a legal question. Make a list of the things she has of your's. State the date of the break up and the number of times you've ask her for them. Give her a time by which to have returned them, telling her if she doesn't you will sue her in small claims court, (depending on the value of your things) And then do so if she doesn't return your things. Most men and women don't act like this when they break up.

brilliant! next time a gal yells at me to turn off the camera, i'll tell her it's to protect her stuff!

ok, i'm probably gonna make myself look pretty ignorant here, but op, can you work a bluff? file in small claims, get her served, and she'll probably dump the stuff on your lawn to make the issue go away.

Excellant Alooo, I laughed till i cried. Now I know why people make sex videos of themselves. I cannot cut nd paste the quote as Im using a mobile. On a more serious practical and workable note, as already suggested go with 1 or 2 female friends to collect your things. Ring when u are outside the home so if she is in she has no time to leave, Good luck.

Ask the local police for an escort to do a personal property recovery. When she sees the police with you at her door, she will be less inclined to put up a fuss.
The best offense is a good defense!
Stay within your legal rights.
