My ex husband went away to prison after hitting me. He was found guilty of harrasment and child abuse and violation of parole. He was away for 9 months. Now all his stuff was here. His parents picked up a lot of it. Did I even need to hold onto anything ? Isn't that abandonment. He now wants the bed and kitchen table claiming there his and other stuff around the house. He left me with all the bills and now has been out a couple months and still hasn't paid child support. Can I sell his stuff for money. Or do I need to give it to him. Thank u

You should consider filing a violation petition in family court for failure to pay child support. The form is available online. However, be aware that he may file a cross petition to lower his current child support obiligation based upon a reduced earning capacity. Consult a local family court attorney.
