Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hello! If you have joint legal custody of your children that means that you have to AGREE to medical care otherwise it can become the sole cost of the one parent. If you are ordered to pay a mortgage then you must pay it. If you weren't ordered to continue to pay the mortgage and she was supposed to sell the house and she didn't that cost is on her
Agreement states house is to be sold. She refused to renew listing and kept it off the market.
Do I still have to honor other terms when house is off the market? Are all other items issues of conduct and therefore there is no legal way to determine acceptable behavior?
There is an argument that you shouldn't I would file a contempt of court order motion with the court to make the determination that she is in violation of a court order.
