If he is truly in contempt of court, I'm not sure why you would settle the contempt action without getting your legal fees paid. It could be that he is so stubborn because he knows that you will eventually cave, and let him off the hook. Have you tried just filing a garnishment to collect your money? It is not so emotional or subject to interpretation as a contempt.See question

Since you listed this question under "adoption", I will address that first. If you are married, a step parent adoption is the easiest way, and the most complete way to deal with this issue. The adoption does everything you could need. It terminates the father's rights, authorizes a name change, and even a birth certificate change.
The courts are reluctant to terminate rights if there is no one to step in to take those rights, unless there is actual harm to come to the child. You should seek to retain an experienced adoption attorney if that is your goal.

My ex wife moved from Alabama without filing to relocate 4 years ago I just found my kids at the beginning of this year when she filed in Marietta Georgia to get full custody also to get arrears payments from me or I go to jail even though I just ...
If you still live in Alabama, and that is where the most recent Order on Custody was entered, provided that you have not already waived jurisdiction defenses by representing yourself, you may still be able to get this case dismissed on jurisdictional grounds. Do not do anything more without consulting with an experienced custody attorney (ask if he/she is familiar with the UCCJEA. if not, move on), and do that ASAP.See question
I recently learned my ex-husband may have hidden money from me during our divorce proceedings. It has been 27 months since our divorce was final.
If you believe that there was fraud or misrepresentation in obtaining the divorce decree, you have only 3 years from the date of the final decree to file a motion to set it aside. Contact a divorce attorney immediately to preserve your right to pursue this matter.See question

I am a divorced mother, with an 11 year old son. I have had full physical custody since my divorce in 2006. However, my divorce does not state that. I recently with the Courts permission moved from Michigan to Georgia for a new job. My son's fathe...
The UCCJEA, adopted by every state, provides that jurisdiction will remain with the last court to decide custody, so long as one party remains in that state. Time of residence does not matter. You will have to go back to Michigan if he still lives there. Once he moves, the home state of the child has jurisdiction.See question
