I have a restraining order against my former roommate, so he has to stay 500 feet away from my residence and place of work, and there's an order of no contact as well. During the court hearing on the 16th to extend the order for a full year, I asked the judge how long he has to get his stuff out of my apartment and the judge said he should do it quickly, within the next week. But there was no paperwork specifying that he had to have it out within a week.
He is supposed to arrange through a 3rd party to have his stuff removed from my place of residence but has made no effort to do so, and I served him the papers initially on the 8th so he's been aware this is happening since then. How long do I have to wait before I can get rid of his stuff, or who do I contact to otherwise find out?
You can get a copy of the video or the court reports transcript to establish what the judge ordered him to do. Usually a deputy performs a civil stand by to allow the personal property to be removed. You could move the stuff to a storage unit and then he can pick it up and pay the storage. The statute dealing with storage after eviction may be helpful.
