Help! My husband and I are in the middle of a divorce. We

Help! My husband and I are in the middle of a divorce. We did our decree online and submitted it (though it isn't final yet). In the decree, the only item mentioned that was our family vehicle. It also states that he is to transfer a particular amount of money to me. Before we got married, he purchased scuba equipment for himself and for me. All of my equipment was purchased with me in mind (color, size, etc). Now that we're getting divorced, he wants it back and is withholding the payment until I give him the equipment. Wouldn't these items be considered a gift from him to me and therefore he wouldn't be entitled to any of it? Funds are tight so I don't want to take him to court and end up having to pay his attorney's fees as well as mine.

Engagement ring will not be returned by the ex fiance'

Engagement ring will not be returned by the ex fiance' she is claiming it was a gift. We are residents of the state of Georgia. The engagement was not done on any significant holiday and therefore was a contractual gift which she did not fulfill. Will I get the ring back?Also she has taken my car and will not give it back, she currently has temporary use of the vehicle. The car is registered in my name only, the auto loan is in my name only. She is claiming the car was hers and that she made all of the payments. I have automatic payments to the lender so that is not even possible. Will I get the car back?

I am getting a divorce (or annulment, my ex filed). I have

Hi I am getting a divorce (or annulment, my ex filed). I have my wedding rings but he wants them back. There is debt owed on them, but at least the engagement ring was given to me before the marriage. Can he take it back?JA: OK. The Family Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes. She has told me two different things and unfortunately I don't know my best interests are being kept.JA: What advice did they give you?Customer: Initially she said the ring was mine, that the debt is "his problem". Now, she is saying they are not an asset bc they are not paid for.JA: Is there anything else the Family Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: Just if there is a difference with this with a divorce vs annulment. The marriage lasted one month. We dated for one month, engaged for one month, married one month and now separated one month.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Family Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

I had a girlfriend for over a year. During our time together she bought me a motorcycle as a gift(it is in her name but I have all the paperwork and possession of the motorcycle). We have since split apart and I have had possession of the motorcycle for a year. We recently had an argument and now she is demanding the motorcycle back. Do I have to return it to her? Or is this a civil matter since it came from a relationship of over a year? I live in Colorado. Any information would be greatly helpful.
