What happens if my ex doesn’t follow the divorce decree?
If your ex-spouse violates any aspect of the final decree of divorce, you can file a motion for contempt of court. The motion must state what areas of the final decree have been violated and why the ex-spouse should be held in contempt of court. The burden of proof during a contempt hearing is on the injured party.
What happens when there is no custody agreement?
