Las Vegas, NV asked in Divorce for Nevada

Q: My wife kicked me out and got rid of my truck

Hi my wife kicked me out after a little over a year of marriage in the beginning of December. A few weeks later she had one of her friends call me and say he's towing my custom truck that I spent the last 10 years building out of the garage and if I don't give him money he's going to impound it .. I asked what towing company it was and he gave me a fake name and address (that's when I found out it was her friend calling) recently I tried talking to her so can arrange to get my stuff and she tells me my truck is gone and in some tow yard. Is the legal? Do I have a case if I take her to court?

A: because you are both still married and have not filed any documents with the court (I am assuming you have not), the court will not be able to assist you with this matter at the moment as you are both still married.

I recommend you remove your truck and any other personal belongings from the marital home until such time as you are ready to file with the court.
