    Answered . Unfortunately, you'll have to file for contempt of the court's order. I know it seems like a vivacious cycle, but the court can impose sanctions, such as up to 6 months in jail and a $1000 fine for each distinct violation.

    Answered . Sorry that you are going through this. If all your personal property was not addressed in your divorce settlement you would have to proceed through your local MDJ. If you had a property settlement agreement in conjunction with your divorce with which she is not complying, you can go back to court for enforcement of the settlement and requesting specific performance. With regard to custody, if she is not following the Court Order your recourse is following up with a Contempt Petition. As part of such a Petition, you may request attorney fees and or make-up time. If the contemptible behavior is repeated, the custody Order may be revised.
