Contempt of Court?
hello! I just found this forum and could not have came across it at a better time!!
We are in the middle of a custody battle for my DH's 2 kids, 7 and 5 years of age...
The short version is we go to court, she (BM) claims she didnt have time to hire an attorney etc so the hearing was continued to another time. The judge appointed a Guardian Ad Litem to the case and both sides were required to pay a $600 deposit. Well, we scraped our share together, and she still has not paid. she had until November 7th to pay, and nothing! Now our lawyer is going to file a motion with the court to have her held in contempt of court because the Guardian will not begin to work on the case until both sides pay. Its been 3 months now since our court date and we are so anxious!
My question is, what will happen when he files the motion? Will it basically just bully her into paying the $600? We wont even have a court date until the guardian starts working on the case, so you can understand our frustration! its like shes just trying to delay the case, for obvious reasons... I really have no idea what to expect and didnt get a chance to discuss it much with our attorney.
So, what should we expect to happen? from what ive read online, not much will happen.
