How can my daughter gether baby shower gifts from her ex-boyfriend’s apartment.

My daughter and her boyfriend split up shortly after having a baby. Most of the baby shower gifts necessities and some of her clothing are still at his apartment. He refuses to let her have these items. She has custody and he sees the baby 2x’s/week. What can she do?

The best way to get the baby shower gifts from the ex-boyfriend's apartment is to have some mutual friend intervene with the ex-boyfriend and ask him to simply provide the presents to the neutral third person so that your daughter can have the presents in order for use by the child.

If there is a custody order in place with the court, then the second option is to have a petition filed in the presumed existing court matter involving the baby asking that the court order the ex-boyfriend to provide your daughter possession of the baby shower gifts.
