Our expert says:
This is basically a legal question, and you should consult a lawyer. If money is tight, check a possible free law clinic at your neaest law school. It hardly seems fair that he would claim rights to sell your stuff, but you might be seen in law to have relinquished some of those rights by leaving the furniture with him. ( Do you have your receipts or bank records to show that you bought them ? )
I am sure he is not entitled to blackmail you to force you to give him access to your son. What happened about the child, in the break-up ? as that also just decided between you ? A court may need to decide about your having full legal custody, and whether the father has visiting rights. And the court is supposed to decide on the basis of what is best for the child. The court can also decide that he must pay maintenance for the child's benefit.
Consult a lawyer to be certain of your rights, and then decide strategically what would be worth fighting for, and what would be worth conceding ( no point in spending thousands to go to court to recover furniture worth less than the lehal costs, for instance ).
