Q: Hi, I have been trying to get my personal property back and my grandpa’s wife refuses to give it back. What do i do?
She lives in Florida and I have been trying for two years to get my stuff back. I asked her for the property back or the money to replace it and she told me that I was getting nothing back and that she didn’t owe me anything. I never abandoned my property, I had been kicked out by them and couldn’t bring the property with me when I left.
A: This question has been posted to the attorneys that handle patents (a way of protecting an invention) and to intellectual property (patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets).
The problem described does not belong in these categories. You may want to talk to someone with experience in family law or landlord tenant law as recover of property from a place where you lived is analogous to disputes that may arise when a tenant tries to recover personal property from a place where the tenant used to live.
You may want to obtain help from a lawyer close to wherever your property is located.
