Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you.I'm sorry to hear your granddaughter is having these issues. But, the good news is yes, she can bring him to court on a contempt action for his failure to comply and she doesn't need a lawyer to do it.The form is called a "Motion for civil contempt/enforcement", and the form and instructions are here. The form actually does a good job of spelling out what she would need to do step by step. She can ask for all sorts of relief from the court, including wage garnishment, and that he be forced to pay the costs incurred for bringing the motion, for example. She can also ask that he pay a fine on top of any other relief. Of course, what is ultimately done is up to the judge.The other forms she may need for the hearing (as referenced in the instructions for the contempt motion) can be found on the Florida Courts website, here:http://www.flcourts.org/resources-and-services/family-courts/family-law-self-help-information/family-law-forms.stmlThere are also links on that side to self-help legal centers and low cost legal aid services.If you need clarification or additional information, please REPLY and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thank you.
