Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licnesed attorney, and I look forward t assisting you.
Who is "they"?
Why are they refusing to allow you to take your property?
Thank you for the additional information.
Assuming the police will not help you because it is a civil, not a criminal matter, you can file an action for replevin in the county court where your property is benig kept. That is a petition where you ask a judge to restore possession to you of your property being held by someone else. The order to restore possession is under threat of being held in contempt. The court also has discretion to order money damages for the loss of use.
The clerk of the court will have the forms you need to fill out to start.
No, they can not hold your things. That is illegal, but it is not because of your mail, it is because you have the right to take your own property. No one has a legal right to keep your property.
The police will either tell them to let you get your things, or they will say they are not getting involved in a civil matter and you need to sue.
Are you still online with me?
