Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you. Before I can adequately provide a response, I need just a little more information.
Can you clarify your legal question for me? I'm not sure I understand what exactly you'd like to know.
If you added details that answer my Info Request in the “Optional Information” or “Already Tried” fields, then I apologize. Questions are often posted for the experts to answer prior to the completion of those fields. Just let me know that I missed something pertinent and I’ll be happy to get back to you.
Thank you for the clarification. I do agree with whoever told you that your ex probably did not violate the court order. It’s quite a stretch to argue that one phone call from a creditor retrains your personal liberty or is harassment. If your ex used your phone number on credit card applications as a matter of routine, and you were constantly being bothered with such calls, then that could probably be considered harassment, but probably not the one call.
In any event, the only way to force Lifeguard Financial to provide the information is to subpoena the records. However, in order to subpoena the info, you’d need to initiate some kind of lawsuit against your ex. You cannot subpoena records in order to prove contempt. If you sue your ex for something like identity theft for using your personal information in credit applications, then you could subpoena the records.
Have I satisfactorily addressed your concerns? If not, then please feel free to ask for clarification. Also, if you added details in the “Optional Information” or “Already Tried” fields that I did not address in my answer, then I apologize. Questions are often posted for the experts to answer prior to the completion of those fields. Just let me know that I missed something pertinent and I’ll be happy to get back to you.
I regret that my answer is unfavorable, but please understand that it would be unfair to you (and unprofessional of me) to provide you with anything less than a truthful response. With that in mind, I hope that you found some value in my answer. If so, then please remember to click the green accept button so that I will receive credit and compensation for my time. Positive feedback is always appreciated as well. Thank you and good luck!
