Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.
Try to make a list of the items.You may need to file for divorce and make return of these part of the property settlement.You can try reporting this to the police but likely they tell you it is a civil issue.Filing for divorce here and seeking these items back from the judge if necessary is your remedy.
I think you should consider filing for divorce to protect your rights to these items and your share of marital property here.This is yours and the court can order her to return it to you.
Lawyer for you here
Sorry she did this to you, you do have remedies in divorce court. You may want to remove your stuff here since you are sort of in no mans land until divorce has been filed and orders are in place.
Thanks again for he chance to help today.
Reference to PA law.
Generally speaking, “marital property” in Pennsylvania includes all assets acquired by either spouse during the marriage (anytime between the date of the marriage and the date of separation).
“Non-marital” assets aka “separate property” include the following:
Generally PA courts have the authority to divide and distribute marital property between the spouses in a divorce, but spouses typically get to keep their separate property.This should be returned to you in a divorce if it is your separate property.
I wish you the best with the divorce and moving on, the court should order her to return the property here and orders concerning the house itself..
I would still ask for them from the judge here.If you have any other separate property you may want to store it elsewhere until divorce is complete.It is sad that the spouse would do this.I wouldn't give up on this make a list and include it in your divorce.
I wish you the best here with all of this.I know it is hard to deal with sometimes, keep your chin up.
I think you may have to think about whether it is worth the cost of a lawyer here.
You can certainly claim this here,it was premarital.
I hope you can still resolve it.The holidays are weird times, sometimes people can do the unexpected.Hopefully it will sooth out and you can agree to a divorce.Thanks again and the best here.
If you can leave a positive rating when we are done it is always much appreciated.
You can have a no fault divorce here and divide the assets that are marital.Here it appears these are non marital separate property.Non-marital” assets aka “separate property” include the following:
It is a matter of he said, she said unless you can have neighbor, relative, etc testify they were yours.If you have any receipts or pictures of them prior to marriage that is also good evidence but not always available.
