Good evening,

I'm assuming she's going to file a contempt motion because you have been late with payments? While she can file, If so, it's unlikely to succeed, because she would have to show that you are intentionally/willfully not paying her on time. If this is a result of for example an erratic pay schedule, or because you work on commission for example, and the checks are sporadic, etc. and not willful, it's not likely to result in any sanctions.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
