My question involves personal finance in the State of: <<several - includes parent and children in multiple states>>
Recently found out that a parent has a decent quantity of bonds with their name AND either my name, or my sibling's ("parent, siblingA", or "parent, siblingB").
I had forgotten about these since I was a kid, and very recently found out they're still with my father, whose name (as well as either me or a sibling's name on all the bonds) is on them as well, and he's not divulging anything.
My question is this: my siblings and I are all over 21, and the bonds were (mostly, anyways - there could always be more, we don't know) given to him and my mother when we were born/very young. In the meanwhile, they divorced, he kept those (she can't find anything in the divorce papers that itemized or even mentioned the bonds), and my siblings and I just recently found out he does still have physical possession of them. Do we have any rights, as our names are on the bonds and the nature of their original receipt, or are they fully at his discretion?
I tried just asking him but got nowhere, and he has held physical property of mine (after I had moved out, and was no longer a minor) in a manner that was absolutely in violation of the law - it was resolved, but I'm afraid this will not be (if there's anything to resolve, of course!).
Sorry no state listed, all siblings and father live in separate states across country! Thanks in advance for any help, I just want to know if I have a say or not, because once he knew that I knew they were in his possession, he got extremely defensive in a way I hadn't heard in a while, he's either upset I even inquired about their nature, or is in the wrong and knows it, I just need to know which!!
