Recent Contempt of Court questions

Thank you for your time and help. I really appreciate you

HelloThank you for your time and help. I really appreciate you providing this service to me.My question.... is two-fold....Here is some background....I am divorced (final order signed 11/19/15) out of a 25 year marriage. My husband destroyed my life as I knew it. He lied when he filed his paperwork for a mental hygiene warrant on me. Stating he had tried to do all he could to get this taken care of prior to filing. (Had he done so, he would have known I was not psychotic. I even had multiple office notes from my psychiatrist that were highlighted "Severe depression with no psychotic tendencies" from every visit. He put me in a mental institution (I wouldn't have been had my interviewer not been multitasking and wrote some of my answers incorrectly and convincing the judge, with some difficulty, that I was a danger to myself and others). It rocked the foundation of my world. I would never hurt anyone, including myself. I hold life very sacred. I was a LPN, graduated top of my class and was class president. Passed my state boards with the least amount of questions possible. Held dual license in WV and KY. My passion was brain injury rehab and stroke. (I became disabled in 2009) Sadly when I was put there, the Doctor (head of the hospital) did everything to make sure I stayed. I believe it was 22 days. I think that my I behavior was in a manner fitting with the outrage I felt at being betrayed by a man I thought loved me, and being falsely accused of things.... not being psychotic. I was taught growing up that you told the truth if it "took the skin off of your back and sometimes it does". I also was brought up by a narcissistic abusive Mother whom expected perfection as I and my 3 siblings were a reflection of her and on her. So I did everything possible to be as near perfect as I could to not be in the path of her wrath.I have worked in a Psych hospital, midnight shift on the Children's unit. I know that I/and others were not monitored properly and that I did not receive my rights upon admission, I feel my rights were violated and saw many things that I do not feel were proper during that time. I think I entered the facility April 29 maybe the 30th as it was very late at night. I was supposedly psychotic and had other diagnosis as well. It is now September, less than 1 1/2 years later. I am discharged from my former psychiatric care for severe depression/anxiety brought on by years of abuse by my Mother. I had to go off of the medication given to me for being "psychotic" right after discharge as I was having severe side effects from it so I have not taken any medication for being psychotic since shortly after discharge. What is the likelihood that I "got over it" in such a short period of time as well as the other things I was labeled with in addition to my severe depression/anxiety and panic attacks?? Is there anything I can do regarding this to either have it looked into or to have the status changed?Secondly, my court order is that my ex (he grosses over $9,000 per month) is to pay me $2,000 per month. (I think it should be more). He did not pay while we were separated and I went through all the monies I had in the bank, to live on and keep up the home/bills we had formerly shared and care for our 2 puppies (both very ill). My income from disability is $810 (net). When he pays in this way instead of once a month, as ordered, I am short until the months come around that he catches up. Is this legal or should he have to pay the way it is written?More of my history.......I found out in 2013 I was born with 2 very rare condition by diagnosing myself. It explained a lot of my complicated medical history. The main one is associated with a large number of birth defects. I was born with only one kidney and have been diagnosed with kidney failure. I was born with 2 uterus' and had life threatening complications with 2 pregnancies. My life was saved (barbarically) by the bare hands of my OB/GYN resident and another physician while wide awake, when I was bleeding out from a complication and no surgeon or anesthesiologist was available to do so. I have had at least 12 surgeries and probably over 100 procedures. I have gained 2 more rare conditions since my birth for a total of 4. I see a specialist for every symptom as there is not a specialist for my main rare (Klippel Feil Syndrome). So life is very difficult to say the least.Thank you again for your time in reviewing and answering my questions.... Always is a pleasure to work with Just Answer.Kindly,Pamela

My wife and I are getting divorced. She has been working for

My wife and I are getting divorced. She has been working for an Insurance agency for 34 years. We recently took out a loan which i am the primary signatore on. There is an agreement in place and I have all the relevant numbers. Now they are conspiring to stall the purchase and sale so I would get nothing. Do I have any recourse?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: UtahJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: They have an agreement in place which is to be finalized on 1/1/17JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Last week my wife went behind my back and tried to have me removed from the loan which was taken out for the specific purpose of the down payment on the business. Of course without my signature she couldn't do it. she doesn't know that I know what she tried. Is that intent to defraud?

I have a situation where my ex-wife had a judgment entered

I have a situation where my ex-wife had a judgment entered against her share of our jointly owned property. The judgment was levied for an outstanding debt to Discover Card. The debt was not in my name, and I am not a named party on the filing for the judgment. We were already divorced at the time the judgment was awarded. Since that time, I assumed sole possession of the property and had her name removed from the title through a quit claim. I now wish to refinance the property but the lien remains in place. The debt has been discharged through a subsequent bankruptcy award that my ex-wife secured. I have made repeated attempts to deal with the firm handling the judgment on behalf of Discover Card but they will not respond to my communication. I want to file a motion with the court to try and set aside the lien against the home. Can I?

My lawsuit is against the trustees of my family trust and

My lawsuit is against the trustees of my family trust and unfortunately my own mother is one of the trustees. She is not in favor of what the others are doing at all and quite frankly is scared of the other trustees. They have been pulling some pretty egregious stunts lately and that includes making a deal with my own attorney to drop out of the case. So I just went to the first status conference today and showed the judge my evidence and he had no problem giving me another two months for a continuance but here's my problem... Some of the best evidence I've collected over the past year is from my mother, I have a dozen or so emails that could make this case alone and over the last few months months I've sent some pretty mean emails to my mother to try to get her to stand up for us against these guys, but today that backfired. The defense asked for a restraining order to prevent me from talking about this case with my mother. They didn't ask to have me stop talking about her, they just wanted me to stop talking about this case. Now I admit that my "rude" emails were about this case but that seems rediculous. If anything, they could have just asked me to be nice. But anyway, the judge saw a few of the emails and asked me about them and I agreed to stop. After the conference, the other attorney sent me a copy of what had been signed and it prohibits me from talking to her about anything that has to do with this case, and not only me but my wife to (she is also named on the petition). The judge hasn't seen the evidence I've collected yet but there is no question that the defense just wanted to prevent me from gathering any more. What can I do?
