If she improperly took money out of his ATM, then he could do two things. One is to press charges against here for basically stealing his money.
The second thing to do is to sue his girlfriend to recover the money.
Which is the better idea?
You can do both, but pressing charges would probably result in the recovery of the money if she still has it plus the police would take the lead rather than you having to take the time and money to recover the funds
And just so you know, the Maryland Domestic Partnership Law would not be applicable in this case...it is only applicable in relation to hospital decisions
So he just calls the police?
Yes, and files a report (he can go down to the police station to fill out the paperwork)
You are welcome, please provide positive feedback
