Prior to filing of divorce, all marital property is able to be controlled by both spouses. Once a divorce is filed, all property must be maintained and nothing can be removed until the court orders it or the parties agree. So her attorney telling her to do this is not illegal, but certainly speaks volumes to the ethics and morals of her attorney.Unfortunately, now you have to get your own attorney to sue her for damages for taking your personal working tools and personal property and for the loss you incurred or you at least have to get your attorney to file in court for an injunction to stop the sale. That is the only way you are going to stop this. Since she has an attorney who does not mind acting immorally, you are going to need to have your own attorney to protect you here, because if he is doing this now, it will only get much worse as the divorce proceeds.
