about 3 months ago and its just clothes. Ian

Hi
In that case her only real option is to ascribe a value to the clothes and sue her ex for that amount of money using the Small Claims Court
Within that claim she can ask for either the return of the goods OR a the money to replace them.
Not perfect I know - but sadly the only legal option available to her
Please ask if you need further details
