Palestine, TX asked in Divorce for Texas

Q: divorce decree

My sister-in-law has a ring in her her safe deposit box and it is to go to her daughter 19 yrs. old. Her daughter wants her to send the ring certified mail. It is valued at 3500.00. Due to the value of the ring her mom wants her to come to the bank and get it and sign for it with witnesses. Is it wise to send something that valuable by certified mail? Daughter is refusing to meet her mom. What would be the down side of this if something happens to the ring or the daughter claims she never got it?

A: I recommend that the daughter pick up the ring herself. In our office, we have had the experience where an opposing attorney mailed a valuable item and it was not received. He was able to trace it but not actually get the item back.
