My divorce was finalized...

My divorce was finalized in October 2009. My former divorce lawyer married my ex husband in 2010. She immediately started to destroy my judgement. ( yes she’s at the state bar( I need a California lawyer to respond) By 2013, I was watching my ex break every divorce clause ( medical, term life, our kids college, a long list. I’m now pro Per since 2013. I know the statue of limitations runs out on certain clauses in the judgement. As I’ve had no money to file since 2013, I now do. How do I file correctly in California? I have sent 9 settlement offers. He does nothing . The former lawyer is creating chaos . Thank you

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

California

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

I’ve sent by server, settlement offers. I’ve literally had no money EVEN to file, as that means court costs, and I live out of state. I know have the money to file and fly to California. This former lawyer acts as his de facto lawyer.

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

I need concise filings and why I could not file. This is legal, financial and emotional abuse. They harass me by NOT responding and this is directly against standing court orders in 2012. We will be literally on the street in three months.

Hi, yes.
You need to know this
When I hired my divorce lawyer, my ex refused representation. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought my lawyer would marry my ex. She has cost me $185,000 to date in legal fees. I MUST enforce this judgment .

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.
