Hi Daniel thanks for your response.

The issue is I loaned him 8000 dollars our relationship is over and I have all he's personal effects I want to hold these till he makes payment the police in Queensland tell me I am holding the
Illegally and he had a right. I
Know I will never see the money if I give them up.

In such matters it is reasonable to keep the items in this instance.

It is a family law matter and as such there is a need to settle.

If you give him the items, there is every chance he will not pay the money back at all.

Please accept.
