do you have a key still- can you not just go in and get the important "stuff"? do you or the children need said important "stuff"?

I *wish* my ex had cleared the house out. Would've saved me three weeks of non-stop organizing and packing up the house to get it readied for sale.

What everyone is trying to tell you to do is forget the stuff in the house unless you absolutely need it.

My suggestion would be to go get your clothes, important papers + sentimental things.

Call your ex and ask them to meet at the coffee shop. make a list of big items (furniture, art work, etc). Ask if they want it. Ask them what they want first.

If they won't meet with you- send another email stating the stuff you would like. If they still won't respond/meet with you- go get it.

Then move on with your legal proceedings.

Who in their right mind discusses dishes and used furniture with their lawyer?
Usually in these fights there is 1 or 2 people not in their right mind.

Yet you want to bring a motion for this because the ex won’t discuss?

Yes.
But from what I am reading I should just take the things that I really want and then let it sort out afterwards.

I thought I might get into trouble for doing it but I guess not.
They already took stuff but not a lot but they also wont admit they took the stuff.

Each of you are going to have things that lean toward the other. Maybe a painting or piece of furniture that is more to “your” side than “hers” or things that have a level of importance. You could just take things if it won’t create an impact to the kids or cause a war. You could also make a list of what you want or don’t want for future court dates. There are so many different ways to deal with it. The bottom line is, this isn’t a motion to auction kind of situation.

Think too about what has emotional value. My partner was upset he didn’t take more photos or videos of the kids. His list was small—his things, a few sentimental pieces and a few pieces of furniture to help him get started. He now says he should have been more thorough. He left a lot of his personal things he didn’t feel were important and his ex just threw them away. Now the other side is the kids went through his new house making comments about how he took things he wasn’t entitled to like cds and records and books. (eyeroll)

Fathers who have left the house and go to retrieve their stuff often face unfounded claims of violence or threats. It is a high-risk procedure.

If you go to pick up your stuff, bring a friend who only has one job: Video tape the entire process from beginning to end.
