////Can I get reimbursed from ex-wife who sold our dog to breeder?


My ex wife and I bought a dog together in 2014. We divorced in may 2015. She kept the dog because I couldn’t take it to an apartment. She said she would make the payments. 4 years later I get a phone call wanting back payment on this day. My son said she sold it for $3000 to a breeder in California. Can I sue her to get my money back?


People who believe they are owed money can sue to try to get compensated. However, the statute of limitations to seek reimbursement may have expired. Also, verbal agreements without corroborating evidence can be difficult to enforce since disputing parties often recount different versions of their agreement. Perhaps it is time to move on. I hope the dog is doing well.
