My ex moved to California and has not paid alimony as ordered. I would like to file contempt charges in Oregon and have him served where he resides in California. Are the court papers enforceable from one state to another for alimony.Just learned today that there are liens against jointly owned real property, namely the house that was ordered to be sold w/proceeds used to pay off marital debt and the remainder going to each side. The liens are for the money awards granted to me, yet I've no knowledge they were filed; my attorney did not tell me. I think his attorney told him, because he asked the realtor if there were any liens when he finally surfaced at the final hour before foreclosure and when there was an offer to buy the property. What gives with the liens? Are they a matter of course? Why was I not informed about them? I've spent hours and $$$$ pursuing him and could have waited and saved $$$ until the house sold. Now that he will see there are liens, he may not be willing at all to sign off on the sale as he will have nothing to gain from the proceeds. Any suggestions?
