  • If your getting a divorce you should be able to keep half of everything regardless of who payed for it. Maybe check with a lawyer. Good luck!!
  • It was a gift. He gave it to you, it is your's. I wouldn't let him take it.
  • There are several ways to look at this, in my opinion. First off...if you are getting divorced and your state sees things as belonging to BOTH OF YOU...don't allow him to take anything but his personal items to start with...like his clothes. You need an attorney to help FAIRLY sort through all of the rest of the things in the home/garage that the two of you accumulated during your marriage. Personal gifts you each GAVE TO EACH OTHER over the years...belong to the person they were given to... so he can go suck a rock on that one! Also...a good attorney will tell you "DO NOT FIGHT OVER TUPPERWARE!" This can be literally or figuratively speaking. It means do not PAY YOUR ATTORNEY to fight over things you can easily replace that do not have some REAL value emotionally or financially as an asset. If there was abuse going on...I would strongly urge you to get a restraining order ASAP...and call an attorney to protect your assets... If you worked outside of the home, then doubtless your income helped to provide for the quality of life you both enjoyed... If you worked at home, managing the house, doing the laundry, shopping, cooking, cleaning...WELL THAT HAD/HAS A VALUE TOO...your work, plus his income created a life you shared! What he is pulling now, is just a bully tactic, and you are within your rights to tell him...NO, YOU ARE NOT TAKING EVERYTHING...WE each need to get an attorney to help us sort it out...since YOU are not being fair or reasonable about it! DO NOT LET HIM PULL THIS STUNT ON YOU... Unless all you did was sleep and eat...YOU also contributed to the marriage, and you are entitled to some of the assets just as he is.
  • No, it is yours since it was a gift. Split all the other stuff and just be rid of him if that is what you want. You deserve some things since you had to put up with his sh@t too.
  • If was a gift, you have every legal right to keep it. And if you want it you should. If he wants it that bad, he can bring it up in the divorce hearing for a judge to decide. I've seen judges go both ways, but mostly they go with the gifting angle. However, if it's worth any significant monetary value, the judge may make you sell it and split the money. The only time I saw a judge take away the gift and give it to the giver was when he used the computer for business use (he was self-employed and marketed/invoiced, etc).
  • no, i be like sorry that was my gift,,how about ( Hell Nah )
  • Amen. First change the locks, get a lawyer,get a restraining order if he keeps harrassing you.
  • Are we talking divorce here? If so, each of you need an attorney. No matter what you divide now, if you divorce, the court will intervene and all property will be divided by the court. Concerning the computer. if it was a gift to you, then its your property. you may have a hard time proving this, since you know he will not tell the truth. What happened to you guys, anyway?
  • I guess I would like to ask, how do you "make" someone move out of their house? It's time to get a lawyer. One thing you have to remember though is...the more you fight over the more it's going to cost you in the long run. Can you afford to replace the computer? Even if you can't, most local libraries have computer's that you can use. I'm not sure that you are aware of this but the most dangerous time for a woman is within the first couple of weeks after a breakup. If there has ever been an issue with physical abuse someone needs to know. This doesn't necessarily mean the police. You can actually make a bad situation worse in some cases by getting a restraining order. And they really aren't worth the paper that they're written on anyway. I would try to keep things as civil as possible.
  • Whose house is it anyway. Then you can't actually stop him from taking everything he bought if you force him out the house. Think about it which one is more important the house of the computer.
  • The computer is yours. Change the locks on your doors. If he wants something he can get it in the divorce proceedings.
  • No, he cannot take back a gift. Marital assets? He cannot just take them. Get an order of protection and see an attorney asap.
  • In the eyes of the law, What is mine is yours and what is yours is mine. As long as you are married anyway. Until a court says differnetly.
  • all gifts are off limits. Legally, he cannot take what he gifted to you. as for all household goods, the value of the items is a 50/50 split. DONT let him take anything but his personal property. Reason being, once he removes it from the "family" residence, it is no longer community property. i bet he already knows that and thats why he wants to take it all now.
  • Who owns the house? That's the big ticket item. He can take what he owned before the marriage and half of what was bought after the marriage. It's community property, including the computer if it was a household appliance. Like if he bought you a Kitchen Aid. Same thing. That's the risk people take when they don't get a pre-nup.
  • If it was a gift, then he cannot take it.
  • Don't let him take anything, until it's your rights and his are established by a court of law. If he has taken things from the premises, make a list. Changing the locks is a great idea, and a restraining order if he gets "hostile" or "violent" may be a need. Remember, that it doesn't matter who bought it, is yours too.
  • 2nd Answer........ After reading your question over and over, how did you make your husband leave? half the house belongs to him, if you live in a 50-50 state. Did you use force or threaten him? generally, men will not leave under a threat. they will leave if asked to by a spouse or girlfriend, but never a threat.
  • Let the court decide I'm sure they won't let him
  • Oh no, not the computer! Anything but that! ; ) +3
  • In a law court, he'd get smacked out of the room. So no.
