There's no prohibitions on what lawyers do with old books. I haven't had a physical copy of a legal book in four or five years.

Most of the larger firms put out a notice that the old books are available if anyone is interested in picking them up.

A Colorado attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. It's possible they rerouted the package to the correct address after sending you that message. If for any reason you do receive a package that doesn't belong to you, notify the post office. Good luck

answered on Mar 21, 2016

It is not illegal, but it would be very unusual for a buyer to be present at the inspection. Before the inspection check the sales agreement to see if there is any language about this. Next make sure that both the inspector and the seller are ok with the buyer's presence.

Your ex is likely violating your custody agreement and most certainly violating Colorado law. I suggest that you file a contempt charge against your ex. Our local courthouse will have resources to assist you or you can hire a lawyer.
