    Answered . First of all, why are you shouting? Using all capitals is considered to be akin to shouting. It's just as easy to type in lower case, and save the capital letters for the first letter of the first word in a sentence.

    All you need to do is type up a Motion for Contempt. Use another document in your court case, and type the Court, Parties, Certificate of Service verbatim. In the body of the Motion, you would state who is filing and why. State exactly what was awarded and that it was never turned over. Be forthright. Explain your actions in attempting to get the property, and perhaps you could attach letters you've written asking for the property. At the end of the motion, ask that the other party be held in contempt. Be sure to mail a copy to the other party as you've certified in the certificate of service. Hand carry the original and file it personally. And please, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, don't use all capitals!
