What do I need to do to enforce a marital/ divorce agreement

Resolved Question:

What do I need to do to enforce a marital/ divorce agreement in Adams Co. Pa.. I am trying to get my ex who is remarried to sign a 2nd mortgage lein release and sign title to trailer over. She signed 1st mortgage lein release but mortgage co. who is different then 2nd note co. took care of paper work with my exs attorney. I can not use attorney that drew up original papers, I have personally handed a notarized copy of lein release to her attorney and spoke with him about both issues only to be told that he was working on it. I called court and was told they do not have forms for motion to enforce that I can file. I have filed my own papers for child custody issues on my own i figured that they would have something I could file for this but said they do not. I have sent the attorney letters and gave them another signed and notorized copies of lein release. Her attorney was actually next to me when I had lein release notorized in prothonotary office. This whole process with child custody and issues is really bad boy did I get a rude awakening. The kids suffer and no one really gives a damm. Hope I covered everything to get me in the right direction. Greg Hamilton

WebLaw :

You may consider bringing a contempt action to compel your ex to adhere to the order and sign the release

Generally speaking, when someone violates the court orders they are considered to be in contempt of court. To enforce your rights you will need to file a motion for contempt (may also be called an motion to show cause). In that motion you indicate what the orders are and how she has violated them.

You can typically pick the forms up at the clerk of the court's office and file them yourself.

What form would I use do not want to look foolish but only forms for contemt had to do with child custody, I called prothonotarys office and told her the same thing said she did not have a form

WebLaw :

Did you call the clerk of the courts office?


No I am going to go there now, I have been filing all my recent forms for other issues and figured there had to be a form. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX use this site before for contempt issues in child custody, did not get results that I wanted but it helped a great deal.
