What do I do if I know she has violated the court order? Do I file any paper work before I go to court, or do I just try to bring evidence to court that she has violated?

Brian’s answer: Any time a party violates a court order the other party should file a rule to show cause against them. A rule to show cause asks the court to hold the party violating the order in contempt. The penalty for contempt is up to one year in jail, a fine of $1,500 and/or up to 300 hours of community service or a combination of all three of the aforementioned penalties.
