Hi Stacey,

Why has the police become involved? Was the vehicle purchased by you, or jointly?

Why does your ex-partner claim that you obtained the vehicle fraudulently?

Did you even record the agreed division of assets down in writing?

Hi
Hi Stacey,
Hi Sarah thks for your reply
Why has the police become involved? Was the vehicle purchased by you, or jointly? The vehicle was purchased by him however it only ran for a week unable to fix the vehicle he purchased another and have the vehicle to me to fix or sell the car was stored at my parents house which they now refuse to hand over as the claim my ex partner has given them the car so I had to have the police help attempt to retrieve it and have made a complaint of theft

Why does your ex-partner claim that you obtained the vehicle fraudulently? Have no idea haven't relieved and legal documentation 2 support this either

Did you even record the agreed division of assets down in writing?
No
