We don't know what court orders the attorney is violating. As a former judge, under Rule 107 of the CO Rules of Civil Procedure, it is a lengthy and complicated process to ask for contempt. You have to decide if you want punitive or remedial sanctions. The path you choose determines the burden of proof and the sanctions available to the Court. Additionally, understand what many attorneys don't understand, contempt of court is to "vindicate the dignity of the Court." Basically, someone has to be doing something that amounts to thumbing their nose at the Court - not at you. I used to go around the state and lecture judges about contempt in 2000. Many judges don't even understand it. If you are going to pursue this path, you absolutely NEED an attorney familiar with contempt filings.
