Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Then how can one serve papers on an individual that refuses to be located and has instructed the Attorney not to receive contempt orders?
Here's the complex situation concerning the attorney.
Last week this attorney attempted to have a hearing without the presence of my lawyer. The judge postponed the hearing. She then asked the Court to order me to divulge my current address to allegedly assist in being served papers. I argued that I would / as I have been compliant with the Marshall contacting me and me receiving papers in person. The judge agreed.
There is a potential that an warrant for her arrest is being processed and for other matters. I filed a contempt for parental interference which is the motion that her attorney refuses to accept.
This same attorney was informed by her client that she had no intent on obeying 4 court orders of producing our children for visitation. The attorney and the GAL have omitted this information from the Court.
