Needs to get belongings from ex boyfriend, possible violence

Ask a Lawyer


Country: United States of America
State: California

I just broke up with my ex-boyfriend and left the apartment we lived in, which was under his name. My stuff is still there, and I would like to get it this weekend. Unfortunately, his behavior can be bad sometimes, and I'm not sure if I'll be able to get my stuff out since he took my set of keys away and I'm afraid he'll get violent or threatening if I return to get my stuff. What are my rights in this situation?


The police will escort you to get your things.
