My boyfriend is currently in county jail. He's probably gonna serve some time in state jail. A few months ago, he finalized his divorce, in which he was given custody of his dog and his s10 truck. The day he went to jail, his ex-wife came to our house and took his truck, and picked the dog up from where he was being arrested at. She refuses to tell me where either are, and tells him she wont give them back to me. Can he still dictate what happens to his property while he's licked up, and if so, how?Since its listed in his divorce papers, couldn't he write a letter stating that while incarcerated, he wants me to have his "property," and have it notarized?
Contact his divorce attorney. If he doesn't have one, hire one. He should be able to assist him.
Your boyfriend has multiple options as how he can go about getting his property back. However, it will be difficult to perform these actions without the help of a lawyer. Avvo allows you to get in touch with attorneys located near you and get a free consultation. I think it will be in your best interest to get in touch with a lawyer.
Yes. She has stolen his property. He may be able to execute a power of attorney to you to address these matters or better his family. He can make a police report about the stolen property. That may end it there. What he wants to do may depend on how long he will be in jail. A certified letter from an attorney may do it. Court intervention may be required.

Have you reported them stolen?
He should, and will need a copy if the decree. He can give you a POA with power to litigate. You'll also need to show that he left the truck with you for your use.
This answer DOES NOT establish an attorney-client relationship. This answer is based on the limited information provided and is not intended to be conclusive advice. There are likely other factors that might influence or change the advice after a more lengthy consultation.
The easy answer is YES. However, there are many other aspects to this. First, the easiest so,union is to post his bond, is he eligible for a bond? Let's assume for argument purposes he cannot post bond. He can execute a Power of Attorney and have it notorized at the jail, giving you the authority to legally reclaim the items. Does he won the truck outright? Is it subject to bank note? These are important factors to have knowledge of. Finally, the best and most economical solution would be to have his Divorce lawyer contact the ex or her attorney and arrange for the return of the items.
