Why are they no longer in your possession? Did you sell the items that were awarded to your spouse?

What state are you located in?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I still have all the items but they were belongings to my family that dates back 40 years ago and have no meaning to her and the other items that she would like ae valuable glass jars that were my mothers before she past and now she would like $1000 for those items
Expert:  Dimitry K., Esq. replied 7 years ago.
Technically speaking, if your spouse was awarded your items, even if they were family heirlooms, she is entitled to them. If you want to keep them, then consider paying her a mutually agreed upon fee, get it in writing that your ex gives up all her rights to those items, and move on.

If you do not give up those items, or you do not negotiate with her, she can take you to corut for disobeying a direct court order, and possibly charge with contempt of court, and additionally try to get the court to award her punitive damages.

I am sorry.

Sincerely, XXXXX Esq.
