Recent Engagement Ring questions

I was engaged about 9 months ago and I have numerous times mailed my ex-fiancee's engagement ring he gave me. He has never picked it up from the post office and it has been sent back to me twice. He also has not returned my calls/texts regarding it. We both reside in the state of MN, and I'm not sure if I get to keep it. For figuring it's a 14k gold ring with a single solitary diamond from Wedding Diamonds that he purchased for 1850.

My name is ******. I am disabled, my husband too. After a

Hello, my name is ******. I am disabled, my husband too. After a horrific betrayal from a sibling who stole money my Mom left me, that is a whole other story. It was intentional cruelty, inhumane treatment from him, wife (law degree), 2 estate atty he knew for years and a realtor undersold my Mom's home. We were homeless, lost all furniture and a friend of my husband insisted us to relocate to SC. So after 4 yrs in surrogate court my.morals vs money and power, the judge never even read my evidence, I didn't know that, but it over. We came here in September 2015, stayed in a motel, until this friends wife saw us and insisted we stay at there house. We were there for three weeks. JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? Customer: Exhausted physically, mentally and emotionally, they knew we had money coming after sale if my Mom's house, we also save money from working most of our life until accidents.we are in South Carolina, after the horrific abuse nobody would listen in N.Y.... JA: Has anything been filed or reported? Customer: Well I'm not looking for the NY incident to go back to as I was tricked to sign selling when I had lifetime tenacy and my Mom left half of house to me, which I didn't even get close to receiving. Now, after 3 weeks at there house in South Carolina, we took the first rental as it was a very toxic household. The husband was very mean to his wife, she is a drug user and dealer we were not aware about, their daughter was fighting all the time, we stayed in a small room minding our business until their daughter came to get me, she was holding a razor to her wrist, father was bagging head on cement pole and wife left. JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you? Customer: In August of 2015 my husband drove from N.Y. To here to put stuff in storage, the friends here had key while he cane back to N.Y. for another trip.

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?
