Greetings. Yes, you can do a Motion in the Cause, requesting assistance, if your equitable distribution was resolved by court order. If not, then there is no recourse.
I would like to say that it is heinous for your ex to keep this from you, since it is so clearly “yours.” That is usually the signs of someone that is hurt. If you want to negotiate with your ex directly, my suggestion is that you ask what is it that your ex would take in exchange for the photos. This may help you get to the heart of the hurt. Best of luck.
