Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
-Could you explain your situation a little more?Is the support owed to you or to DHS as reimbursement for state aid paid to you?
Have you ever filed any motions in the case on your own?
Is the case in the OK court where you reside?
We are not permitted to represent clients from this website so I cannot prepare documents. I can refer you to a website for OK legal forms but a motion is simply written with the case heading at the top showing the court name and parties and case number XXXXX then below a statement from you of why the father is in contempt of court which is rather simple in that he is behind in child support. The court will then set the matter for a hearing. You can also request that the court award you attorney fees for having to file for contempt. Here is a website that you may be able to use for forms in OK.
