California Family Law
#1 Dissolution judgement states marital status
ended in 2010, but judge didn't sign until 2012. Can I still file motion for contempt on what was stipulated, agreed, and ordered if respondent
has not honored the agreements? There are a number of items that have not been honored (ie: no payments for community property
, no college fund for children, no life insurance policy for children, health insurance for children not kept current, etc). I read that there is a statute of limitations. Also, I read that Contempt motions can bring criminal charges with community service and fines, or jail, but I don't want that. Only to compel respondent to honor agreement.
#2 Can I motion for modification stipulating 2 different custody arrangements for two teenage children? One to change from every other week to every two weeks while in the same town and the second for the option to move out of state and change custody with the stipulation that teenagers can decide to move in with me at a certain age if/when I move?
Tried setting up a mediation
case and respondent refused to go, spoke with them in person and they said I am not allowed to leave. Asked them about the money, but they filed for bankruptcy and told me they don't have to honor the community property agreement.
Can no longer afford to live in the same area and living in a very crime ridden area having to commute 4 hours a day to take children to and from school on my custody weeks. Can't afford to lose 20 hours of work a week haven't been given anything for community property, only receive $300/child per month.
Thanks for your feedback (Cannot afford to hire an attorney, as the cost will take all the money that was owed me for the community property).
