She actually admitted it!

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

My ex finally deigned to surrender all (he claims) of my and our child’s belongings in his possession. You know, all the stuff he whined to the judge had been clogging up “his” house, preventing his wife from moving her stuff in and getting in her son’s way of leaving for college. (I have no idea how that works; I’m just telling you what his story was.)

When he finally showed (with me having a cop and a third-party witness on hand), all of our piles and piles of stuff that we’d so rudely “forced” him to store for us “for free” for so many years — fit in the back of his Honda Civic, with room to spare.

And, funny thing, when I asked him what had happened to our child’s clothes, his wife volunteered that she’d gotten rid of all of our child’s things when she’d moved in. Just like I’d told the judge on January 24th, she’d donated them to charity for the tax deduction. She actually admitted it!

I won!

My ex has refused to return my non-marital property, despite his own attorney having written the order giving him a deadline of 01 June 2012. He’s even rebuffed all my attempts to retrieve my stuff. Then he started billing me “storage fees” for the stuff he wouldn’t let me get. Then he threatened to sell whatever of my stuff is left, but keep billing me for storage fees.


Anyway, I’d been working on a Motion to Show Cause (why he shouldn’t be held in contempt for keeping my stuff) when I realized that I was about out of time (on his arbitrary and unilateral schedule) for ransoming my things. So I did an emergency hearing at the court, asking the judge for a temporary restraining order preventing the ex from selling or otherwise disposing of my property.

I didn’t get the TRO, but I did get an order saying that the ex must let me come over, must let me in, must let my guys (whoever they turn out to be) move the furniture, and must not interfere. The local police will be allowed to walk me through while I attempt to find the rest of my stuff (like my employment and tax records).

So I didn’t get what I’d asked for, but I was still heard, and I got what I needed. Thank you, all who have prayed for and supported me! Thank you, God! Yay!
