Yes, she was served by the local sheriff's dept. in Wyoming.
I asked for a writ of possession and for an order for her to quit-claim it to me.
I filed a motion for contempt/enforcement of final judgment. It stated what she was supposed to have done and did not do according to our final judgment, and it also showed the actions I was requesting the court to take, which were to 1) issue me a writ of possession, and 2) order her to quit-claim it to me. The form is from the State of Florida family law legal self-help website, as ordered by the Florida Supreme Court, the name of the site is www.flcourts.org. It is a site mandated by the FL Supreme Court to help people who can't afford lawyers represent themselves in Family Court.
OK, so to make sure I have this right: If she doesn't answer my motion for contempt (I suspect she may well not) I file a default motion for a default judgment. How am I subsequently informed of the disposition of the case if I don't appear in front of a judge?
