Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
I am sorry for this dilemma.If your ex is not complying with the court order, they are in "contempt".If this is the case, you can have a local attorney prepare and present a motion to the court to ask the court order he pay up (as required by the original order)Also, you can ask the court to order he pay your lawyers fees...while in most cases each side must pay their own lawyers fees, if you can show the reason you had to go to court was because your ex was in contempt , the court can order he pay your legal costs.Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
