Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, to get the money back your girlfriend would have to file a motion in court objecting to the seizure and you would need to provide proof that the money was not her money and was merely being held for you in "constructive trust" because you do not have an account. The only one that can get the money refunded is the court. If the court refuses (highly unlikely if you prove the money was your money), then your sole remaining recourse is unfortunately to sue your girlfriend to repay you the money.
