    Default Abandoned Personal Property

    My question involves divorce in the State of: Georgia

    My divorce was final in Oct. 2007. I was awarded the marital home and my decree states if my spouse failed to remove personal property from the premises within 30 days, they become my possessions. I have repeatedly contacted my spouse via email, nuetral third party, and telephone but only limited personal property has been removed to date (7 mos. post divorce).

    Am I under any legal obligation to notify my spouse or based on the Decree, can I dispose of the personal property as I see fit? My last attempt was via email in Feb. 2008. At that time, we agreed on a schedule, but he did not meet with the agreement and the personal property remains in my home.

    Per your decree,the property is now yours.

    The court gave him 30 days, it's been 7 months, he's out of luck.
