  • How long does a spouse have to collect property outlined in a divorce? Divorce has been final for four years.

    He is now demanding everything out of the house including a four-wheeler that doesn't run.

    Mandy’s Answer

    I suggest you refer to your divorce agreement. Typically if the agreement is silent regarding retrieval of personal property one can rely on a reasonable time standard. Collecting his property 4 years later isn't reasonable unless he is paying you a storage fee. Good luck.

    Mandy’s Answer

    You are certainly entitled to enjoy holidays with your children if you celebrate them. The real question is did you have these same beliefs prior to the marriage? If she new you didn't really celebrate holidays yet she chose to procreate with you then I think you should still be able to have your kids. regardless of whether or not you celebrate the holiday.

    He hasn't paid a for child support nor have I pushed the issue. My daughter is 4 now. I've asked him several times, and he said he would. I would like to know the simplest way, maybe without having to go to court.

    Sounds like a very serious issue. I think it would be in your best interest to meet with an attorney. You may end up giving up any rights to child support so you have to be very careful. Best of luck.
