More details to this question:
Daughter got a restraining order against me and everything I own is in the home. Got my meds and husbands ashes after court. I have MS and living in my car. I do need things out of her house. Doesn't she have to notify me that I only have a certain amount of time before she sells my stuff? Please answer these 2 questions. Thank you.

Normally a person has thirty days after receiving notice that property should not be considered abandoned. Then you would have to arrange to pick up the belongings through an intermediary such as a police officer (don't do it yourself if there is a restraining order). Or else, you may need to go back to court and inform the judge that your daughter is withholding essential things from you.

Answers to any question is not to imply a lawyer-client relationship which can only be after a consultation and the signing of a retainer agreement disclosing what the terms of representation might be.
