Property Retrieval

If you are a party who needs to go to a residence to retrieve belongings under a Family or District Court Order, and are unable to obtain this service at no charge from your local police or the State Police, you may contact our office at (802) 748-6666. We can discuss the contractual arrangement and our fees for this service at that time. Please be prepared to tell us the anticipated amount of time you expect to be at the property.

Please also note that any property which is in dispute as to actual ownership must remain at the residence and this issue must be settled by a Judge or other appropriate legal authority, such as a court-appointed arbitrator or a Family Court magistrate. We cannot serve as a referee in disputes over items or groups of items. We are there only to ensure the safety of the parties and compliance with State law.

You will need to have the following:

  • A copy of the Order from the court.
  • Positive photographic identification.
  • Specific directions to the property.
  • The name and phone number of the person who will be at the residence.
  • Your full name and contact phone numbers so that we may reach you in case of any changes to the arrangement.
  • A list of the items you seek to retrieve.
