I have no proof of purchasing anything what-so-ever. I can't prove to any court that the items in the person's house were ever mine.
All I want are to get my possessions back, nothing more.
What would I need to prove anything and just get them back?
You have not given the context of your question (whether it is a civil, criminal, or family law proceeding). You can ask the Court to order, or you can see if you can get, a civil standby, where a police officer accompanies you to the residence while you take your possessions. Proof of purchase is helpful, but not necessary if the other person does not dispute ownership.
My answer is not complete; you should contact an attorney licensed in your state to receive legal advice that applies to your particular situation. Answering your general question does not make me your attorney.
