Thanks for your questions and good morning.
Any car in her name can be taken by her .It is not a crime to take her own car titled in her name.It is also not illegal for her to break into her own home.If she decides to do this to get her stuff thats her choice as well.
If the police will not help she may choose to go get her car and also to open her own house and get her stuff.BotXXXXX XXXXXne there would be no crime here.Also when he took the plugs out she should have involved the police at that time and sought to file charges.
But this is in the past.And she may choose to go get her car and her stuff from the house.Since there is no divorce or court orders filing for divorce is going to be necessary as well to deal with property and other issues long term.

Thank you for your help. Knowing what we do now, yes, she should have called the police when he took the spark plugs out of her car.
What about the check payable to both parties if he signs her name and cashes the check?
You should take that up with the police.Thats fraud to sign her name on a check here.
I wish you good luck with all of this.
That's what I thought on the check. Thanks for the good wishes, it's going to be an ongoing nightmare.
