What do I do
Hi

Yes. Unfortunately, this is a civil matter and not a criminal theft because it was part of an agreement via your divorce settlement.

With that being said, I suggest you should write this person a letter and state that he owes you money, how much and that you demand payment withing 7 days of receiving the letter. And that if he does not make the payment or return the truck/equipment you will have no other option but to bring a lawsuit against him.

Mail this letter certified with a return receipt requested. That way, you can show the court that you have tried to settle out of court.

If you do not get payment or hear from him in the time you have allotted, you will need to file a civil lawsuit in the county Superior/Circuit court where the property was taken from or in the county where this man lives; either one is the right jurisdiction. At this time, you will want to consider consultation with a local attorney who would be able to assist you in drafting such a Complaint to file in Court.

WHAT CAN I DO?

Hi

Thank you for that clarification.

If the police will not assist you - then I suggest you go directly to the District Attorney in your county. Tell them what has happened, ask them to have the police investigate for possible charges.
