My daughter took my girlfriends property if it has been in my house for over 30 days is it legally mine?

my girlfriend is pressing charges but i have heard that the property is legally mine if she lives with me and it has been in my home for over 30 days

No, it's not legally yours if it has been in your home for over 30 days. If I stole your car and it was in my garage for over 30 days, would it be mine?

...why don't you just give it back so she can't press charges?

you should ask her to drop the charges and give it back . i dont know what she took, but im sure it is not worth having a criminal record over. give it back,you'll spend more on attorneys fees than the stuff is worth.

im concerned for your daughter, im sure that she wont have the items she took a year from now,but she will have that criminal record ....forever. you should set a good example by giving the items back and explaining to her that it is never okay to take what isnt yours.

Why would you care about it being legally yours (which it's not) instead of addressing the issue that your child committed theft! Nice example mom.

It is because they have been taught they can get away with almost anything.

Obviously your friend is hurt by what happened. I presume she asked you to correct the situation before pressing charges. I do have to ask why your daughter took it? Is it a symptom of issues between your now ex friend and you?

You need to give it back! Your daughter stole from your friend and now you want to keep the item? What are you teaching your daughter, that it's OK to steal? If I were your "friend" and this was your reaction to your daughter being a thief, I would press charges too. Maybe the legal system can teach her right from wrong because as a parent you're sure not doing it. Personally, I would also press charges against you as an accessory!!!!!
