Your spouse may have violated the automatic orders issued at the time of the filing, which generally protects the assets the couple owns for purposes of later distribution or liquidation.
Depending on the value of items lost, you may have a claim for reimbursement.
On the other hand, more minor items may not be covered, and may not be worth pursuing claims.
It depends on the specifics of your spouse’s actions, and whether they would be seen as normal housekeeping after a spouse moved out or a more significant and malicious act.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you understand exactly what the ramifications of lost property during a divorce are, and how to get just compensation when your spouse is taking out their frustrations on your property.
