recently my girlfriend and i broke up.after months of her leaving in the morning and not returning home till night time.leaving me home to take care of her/our children,not biological children to me.she was helping a friend.she got mad at me and refused to talk to me.so i went to her friends house.knocked on the door.to have her friend tell me my girlfriend wished to not speak to me.so i went to take my vehicle back,to find she had stolen my key from my key ring.
i called the police to get my property back.but the officer made me give my house key back.found out next day they had no right to take my key.im not on the lease but i have lived there constant for 2 years.and paid bill.but because she was on H.U.D.i did not receive mail there.now she is refusing to return my property.
what do i do???i just want my stuff so i can move on with my life.

I suggest you write her a letter specifying what property you want returned and requesting a time when you can show up to get it. Send it via certified mail, return receipt requested, and keep a copy for your records. If she is unresponsive you might have to sue her for the property. Show your copy of the letter to a local attorney and follow his or her advice as to what to do next. Good luck!

In any future posts, please put spaces between sentences and use proper capitalization. It makes what you write much easier for others to read.

So...none of them are your children?

I guess what you're saying is that your girlfriend somehow obtained your key to her home where you were living together and is now not allowing you access to retrieve your personal belongings. If that's the case, and if the local police won't assist you, you'll need to sue her.

It's unclear how the police "made" you give "[your] house key back" (and in the later post you say "took the house key".
"but because she was on H.U.D.i did not receive mail there."
In other words, you know that you shouldn't have been living there.
If all you want http://www.examiner.com/article/brain-research-results-better-understanding-of-behavior is your stuff back, then you file a writ of replevin action against her if she's refusing to let you get it and the cops won't talk with her about it.
I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
