Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If the case is still in IL, then you would have to go through IL to file a motion for contempt of court to force him to appear in front of the same IL judge who issued the order to explain his willful disobedience to the judge's order.
So yes, Legal Aid in IL can help, it is just a matter of whether they have any attorneys available who can assist. If not, they may be able to refer you to a low or no cost pro bono attorney who could help. I might also contact the local Child Support enforcement office in IL to see if they could take up the case.
If you are going to be in TX long term, you may want to consider "domesticating" your judgment in TX so that you could then enforce it through Texas. Basically you have to record your judgment in the local court records so that TX could then enforce it under the Full Faith and Credit for Child Support Orders Act (FFCCSOA), 28 U.S.C. § 1738B.
