‘My ex-fiancé, who is also my unborn child’s father, hit me, left bruises on me, and broke my windshield and door panel. We are going to court over this soon. Can I also ask the judge for my television back and also for my cousin’s games that he has borrowed, but never returned?’
In domestic abuse cases, some courts will include in the court order the opportunity for the victim to retrieve belongings (with an escort if necessary). This provision will also specify that the abuser is not allowed to be present. In this case, you may wish to contact a family law attorney or the District Attorney in your jurisdiction to guide you through this process and make sure that the arrangement includes returning your belongings.
