My question involves a relationship in the state of: California
My ex is currently in jail and I have a restraining order against him. He has a couch, a tv, and some car parts sitting in my garage. I've contacted my ex's family members about coming to pick up his stuff but I haven't heard anything back. Can I send a certified letter to his close relatives stating that if they do not retrieve his property within X amount of days, his property will come into my possession? Is that legal? If it is, how many days notice should I give them? And is "possession" the right word to use, or should I say I will dispose of his property at my discretion or something along those lines? Do I have to itemize all of his property in the letter? Sorry for all the questions, I'm a bit lost as to how to proceed!
