If the decree says that you get what you possess, you're out of luck. If it says that your ex is to keep it and return it to you, that's what he has to do. If the decree is silent, the court normally requires return of personal belongings within a reasonable time after the decree. After one month, the judge will expect your ex to still have it for the return. After one year, not.
