For vehicles, this is a little bit easier. Contact a tow company and have them towed. If they were parked without permission a towing company can come and remove the vehicles for you (notify the tow company of the circumstances and they will take the appropriate steps for notification/storage/etc. - work with a tow company that specializes in parking enforcement).For other property, this is a little more difficult. If they had simply dumped property on your land, you could have thrown it away. However, as you have made contact with them and are making an effort to return their property you are now entering into the "abandoned property" laws, and this makes it much more difficult. The easiest thing to do may be to simply inventory the property and place it in storage - this gets it off of your property and you can bill the person for the cost of storage. If you are in contact with them, give them a very short notice (3-5 days) that you are going to be placing the items in storage and they will be responsible for the bill, and give them an opportunity to pick it up before then.In all of the above circumstances, I would advise making an inventory of the property/belongings to protect yourself.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
