I'm in Australia on vacation for a few more weeks but I'm a permanent resident of the United States (New Jersey)
My boyfriend and I lived in an apartment in New Jersey.The police there came to our apartment many times because of his abuse and there are many incident reports
He is also wanted on eight counts of contempt of court
He has left iphone voicemails which the police have taped (and the Prosecutor is in possession of) indicating he is willing to transfer the title back into my name. This was before he realised the prosecutor was after him. He also stole my jewellery and new Mac. He also indicated on iphone dated voicemail he would return that
Appreciate any help
His arraignment is coming up and his attorney indicated he will appear
I need to attend to this problem soon
I don't want to lose my car
I would appreciate your prompt reply
