My girlfriend has been divorced from her ex husband since September of 2000. In her final divorce decree, he was ordered to return all of her jewelry to her. He denied having possession of her jewelry. Well last night, 9/13/2013, we were looking at jewelry on craigslist and came across a ring for sale that she immediately recognized as hers. And the posting is from the town where her ex husband now lives. I was wanting to know what, if anything, can be done to retrieve her property. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

She needs to call her lawyer now. Posting on the web and waiting for general information on a site like this is a waste of valuable time, as the jewelry may be sold tomorrow (or later today).
I agree with Mr. Riddle that you need to act quickly. Contact a lawyer to review her decree and discuss contacting the police, or even setting up a sale with him under a different name to try to get him to show up with her property.
