Dear Customer,

Thank You for posting your legal question this evening. I'm attorney Bill assisting you with your request. If the property that was taken without your permission was distinctly your separate property and not marital property then your wife like any other has committed a theft.

You could report the theft to law enforcement in this regard.

You can also sue in the small claims or civil court for the value of the property taken by your wife.

You would be suing for the return of your property or the monetary value thereof.

A good first step is to send a civil demand letter to your wife.

We are here to help so please follow up with me as required.

I'm an independent legal expert and rely on your positive feedback today to get a credit for my time.

FIVE STARS or your rating is much appreciated in this regard.

Thanks

Explain - distinctly your separate property means

Yes, certainly this is a statutory definition:

""Separate property" means all real and personal property acquired by a spouse before marriage or acquired by a spouse by devise, descent, or gift during the course of the marriage. However, property acquired by gift from the other spouse during the course of the marriage shall be considered separate property only if such an intention is stated in the conveyance. Property acquired in exchange for separate property shall remain separate property regardless of whether the title is in the name of the husband or wife or both and shall not be considered to be marital property unless a contrary intention is expressly stated in the conveyance. The increase in value of separate property and the income derived from separate property shall be considered separate property. All professional licenses and business licenses which would terminate on transfer shall be considered separate property."

We are here to help so please follow up with me as required.

Yes , as I indicated your separate property is protected from both criminal and civil theft.

if I understand this since I have a separate building that’s used for self and totally separate from our home which I made all improvements to increase the value and my building which is gated from others is separate property that I’ve filed taxes on as self run (only me) garage
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
what about the damaged motorcycle

In terms of separate property the separate building needs to have been either (i) your property before marriage, (II) your property due to a marital agreement, eg prenuptial or postnuptial, (III) funded during the marriage through your separate gifts or inheritances.

Damage to marital property or joint property such as the motorcycle is still a criminal offense as part of it is yours so you could obtain both criminal and civil suits for criminal damage.

I see you have yet to leave a positive rating.

Now I have the idea ,marital property or joint property damaged 50/50 but what about the tools and damages plus all items removed and pawned and what about a 27yr old daughter that confessed in a text she took it to be sold at pawnshop ( both took items out to be pawned)
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
On the inheritances.part I just received a large toolbox after my father,s death and if it’s all gone ,how is that approached

Yes, your daughter would be liable to you as she has no right to the property, she is likely to say that she was acting under the direction of her mother but when she is aware that the property is not her solely then she would have committed a theft crime.

You can sue her also in civil court.

Damages to your tools is a criminal act once again that can be included in the criminal complaint.
