After your mediation, and as you alluded to, the judge signed off on the mediated agreement. Once that occurred, that mediated agreement became a court order that you are both required to abide by.
If the other party has violated any term of that agreement, you may file a motion for contempt. The title of the motion would be a motion for contempt. Alternatively, you could title it as a motion for enforcement if that is what you seek. And, of course, if you seek both contempt and enforcement, then title it as a motion for contempt and enforcement.
The contents of the motion would be rather straight-forward:
- You have a mediated agreement
- The court signed off on that agreement creating a binding court order
- That order contained _____ as a condition
- The other party has failed or refused to abide by that condition
- The court should now hold that party in contempt
Once the motion is drafted, file it with the clerk of court and then set it for a hearing. At the hearing, you will need to demonstrate that the other party knowingly and willfully violated that order.
Also, several customers have asked how they may direct a question to me in particular. If you specifically want me to assist you in your legal matter, just put "FOR JOSEPH" in the subject line and I will gladly pick up the question as soon as I am on-line.
