Writ of Assistance
I know, I know... I need to step back. I don't know what got in my head this morning, other than I am pissed. Pissed at BM, Pissed at SS and Pissed that DH feels that it isn't even worth going on our trip if SS isn't there. I try and remind him that me and the 3 other are all looking forward to this trip and spending time with him, but he is just feeling incomplete without his other son, which I would feel the same way so, I do get it.
Anyway, I decided to call the local sheriff's office in SS town and find out if they would help. I explained to the sheriff that we have the court order, the letter from the GAL, the letter our lawyer sent BM and BM's lawyer about contempt, about the fact that we have paid for this cruise and his plane ticket. The Sheriff said that in the past they would have been able to use that and help us get SS. However now they need a Writ of Assistance. We talked a little more about it but he said that with that the judge is essentially ordering the sheriff to get the kid and whatever else is documented and put the kid in the car with whoever the order states.
I asked if this meant they would literally go into the home, get SS, his meds, his glasses and make sure he was in the car with MIL. He said yep, they will make sure that it is done if that is what the Writ orders. He said they are fairly easy to get, especially with everything that we have and BM just refusing.
Now I wait for our lawyer to call me back to tell him to get one of these. Has anyone else used this process? We don't want to go down this path, but at this point I feel like we are out of options. I don't even care if he has his clothes at this point. He can use my BS's hand-me-downs. His glasses and rx's are the only things I am worried about him having since we wouldn't be able to replace those on the fly.
