So sorry to hear about your situation. Unfortunately in order to get the Sheriff's help you will need to get a judgment first then ask the judge to issue a writ so that you can get the car back. I would include the mother in your suit as well because the car title is now in her name. You can sue in small claims in Iowa for up to $5,000. If the car is worth more than that you will have to sue in district court.

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.
