Charlotte, NC asked in Divorce for Georgia

Q: Do I have to give back ring that was given as a gift?

Me and my ex broke up and he gave me an expensive ring as a Christmas gift. We were never engaged or anything, we’ve been dating for 5 months. I think he’s still paying off on it but before he blocked my number I asked if he wanted it he said he doesn’t want it back. Can I just sell it?

A: If it was just a gift, and not an engagement ring, you do not have to give it back, but that would probably be the nice thing to do.

A: I agree with my colleague. If it was a gift you are not obligated to return it, but it would be a nice gesture to do so. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
