Has anyone actually gotten in trouble for disregarding CO
Has anyone ever seen someone firsthand have consequences for not following the court order? I see a lot of stories of BMs not following the order and nothing seems to happen. Do judges just let it slide most the time? What if it is a repeated thing or just blatant disregard?
DH's ex so far has thrown the whole thing out the window. So far she has cut off all communication from herself and SD, she is hiding all medical information for SD, refuses to update the school because she doesn't want us to get her contact information, she relocated several hours away without notifying anyone or filing a motion to leave ( SD cannot be moved out of the county without permission from judge), and is overall on the run with her.
It took a lot longer to file papers than we anticipated because the lawyer was tracking down 911 calls, CPS reports, and background checks on BM's new husband (drug trafficking, domestic violence, possession of paraphernalia) to include in the motion. He finally tracked down BM as well in a small town several hours away. She basically started a whole new life. She gave up her other kids and refused visitation with them. She just has SD.
We don't know what to expect when the day arrives. Will she finally be held accountable or just given another warning? Lawyer says 50/50 for sure but not sure what to expect as far as how the judge will see SD's living conditions. She has been living out of backpacks and up until the move, was couch hopping and going back in forth between fights to BM's abusive new husband.
Does anyone have any experiences or stories similar?
