Process of divorce I still have items at the home I just want clarification if I can or can not go get them.
Did you read that in a settlement proposal? You or your attorney need to negotiate a time and manner of you getting your personal belongings, clothes, papers while the divorce is pending. Things about which there is a dispute will need to be left there until the Court makes a ruling about ownership. If your spouse has already been awarded temporary possession of the house--do not enter it without a written agreement to do so. You probably should not go alone. Depending upon the circumstances of the parties--a civil standby is sometimes needed.
Accepting cases in Dallas, Denton, Collin and Tarrant Counties. THIS IS GENERAL ADVICE AND DOES NOT REPLACE A PERSONAL CONSULTATION WITH AN ATTORNEY AND DOES NOT ESTABLISH AN ATTORNEY/CLIENT RELATIONSHIP
It depends whether one of you already has exclusive use of the residence and/or if one of you have already been awarded the residence. Consult with an attorney who can review the orders and paperwork and advise you. When in doubt, be sure to get the other party's written agreement before you go to the house.
