Also remember, sometimes the law does not support what we want it to support, but that is not the fault of the person answering the question, so please be courteous.
I was served an OSC for Contempt - not paying child support.
I am not guilty. Other than pleading "not guilty" , do I file a Contempt Case against my former spouse for medical, dental, psychological, etc. expenses that he has failed to reimburse 50% of (per the Judge's order)? These amounts are in excess of what he claims I owe him.
There is also an order ordering him to pay my attorney fees for $5,000 that child support from me was to be deducted froml. The amount ordered has not been satisfied.
So do I file a Contempt Case or do I wait for a court date from the "Not Guilty" plea.
I was told by a Just Answer attorney NOT to file a response, that I had to show up and plead "not .guilty" and they'd set a court date and appoint me an attorney
The hearing is Thursday! Can I still file an objection?
The other attorney told me the "not guilty" plea when I asked how long I had to respond to this false OSC.
Thank you for your help. I cannot rate your answer until tomorrow when I unfreeze my account. Thank you.
