I took my ex to court for contempt and because she showed up but did not respond , the commissioner had her sign a order continuing hearing and directed her to appear the public defenders office . I assume this is a continuance . The commissioner also had her sign a notice of appearance pro SE . So , at this point , do I have to get her served with the same paperwork again prior to our new hearing date ? If so , what are my time frames ? I also , have received further communications via text which I feel show additional evidence of contempt . Would i need to have her served again with my intention to introduce this as evidence for our upcoming hearing ?
