I am sorry for this dilemma. But I do not understand your specific question. You say

We don't have a court order but we have an agreement in our papers.

What does that mean? What papers are you referring to?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
he texted me weeks ago through his daughter and told me to do the right thing and sign off on him giving me money.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I told him don't contact me unless through a lawyer
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Should I contact him or wait for lawyer to do so.My lawyer is on vacation.And won't be back for a couple weeks

Can you speak on the phone? This would allow me to address your concerns directly. There is a nominal ($5) additional charge. I do not time my phone calls...we can converse until you receive the information you need.
