My ex-girlfriend/roommate asked me to move and when I didn't do it quick enough she went and lied to the court for a protection order to get me removed from the resident for two months and now that that's over my stuff is gone in the locks are changed I believe this counts as an illegal eviction or something of the sort and was wondering what I need to be doing
Your question is a mix of family law and personal property law. You indicate "my stuff is gone" and "the locks are changed". This would mean that your ex has "converted" your personal property by taking dominion and control over it, and placing it beyond your reach. The intent to permanently deprive you of your property cannot be determined at this time.
IF YOU ARE NOT STILL BARRED FROM COMMUNICATION: COMMUNICATE: RE-READ the Order and make darn sure you are free to communicate. Send a letter via first class and certified mail demanding the location of and access to your personal property so you can regain possession of your stuff. Be nice, a judge may end up reading the letter. Dear Judge.... got it?
If you are not free to communicate, or simply cannot tell if you are or are not free, then set an ex parte hearing in the same case number and before the same judge that issued the order and politely request an order than your personal property be made available to you. This shows respect for the Court, and compliance with its orders.
As a last resort, you might have to report the property as stolen and let her talk her way out of that. Cops get this stuff all the time. I'd consider this as last ditch tactic as inflaming the ex might be more trouble that it is worth. It might also irritate the Judge. I'd stick with the Court route. It is your stuff and you should get it, or its value ordered to you.
Above all, just get your stuff and break contact.
