We are close to getting the divorce. Does it make more sense to request a contempt of court (in order for me to get the items returned or to get reimbursed for the items taken out of the house) or does it make more sense to request that in the divorce settlement agreement? If the settlement agreement says I will be reimbursed, what is the process to have that enforced if they do not comply?
ok. So how do I get a contempt ruling? Opposing counsel is suggesting we do the contempt of court on the same day of the divorce settlement (unless we come up with our own settlement agreement that states what is owed me). I just want my possessions back.
