It is stated in...

It is stated in our agreement that our daughter not to around any romantic partners and a Mathew sheets till divorce is final. I’m waiting on the paper work to be signed and wondering should I let her have our child on her days even tho she is taking our daughter around this guy and living there even tho it is clearly stated in the divorce that she shouldn’t have our daughter around him at all. I don’t know what to do because i know she will take our daughter back over there and that is a contempt so should I give her back knowing she is breaking our agreement?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Indiana

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Yes but waiting for ordered to be signed

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

That I’m just waiting for the order to be signed but don’t know if I should give our daughter back just for he to be around this guy that it is court ordered not to be around

​The Honorable Peggy Q. Lohorn

Thank you. What someone in your situation may wish to do is to file a Motion for Contempt. A Motion for Contempt is essentially the device you use to make sure the other party follows the temporary or permanent orders set out by the Judge. Once the motion is filed, a hearing date is set, and the other side is served and has to appear. If the Court finds the other party in contempt, she may be admonished, fined, and or imprisoned.

HERE is the form for contempt in Indiana.

I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of THREE OR MORE STARS and then click FINISH to submit that rating, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating (it does not cost anything extra to rate).

Do I need to wait till the provisional hearing order is signed b for filing for the contempt ordered?

Apologies for the wait.

Yes. I assume both parties have already signed it? If so, then one's attorney can try to move up the Judge's review and signing of the order, if possible.
