I am tired of forking out all this money to my lawyer and receiving nothing in return. What can I do? Isn't my ex-husband in contempt of court?
I have a divorce decree which states my ex-husband has to pay child support. He paid it until the day I got married and then stopped. That was 2 years ago. My lawyer told me we would have to go to court to enforce it, so we did.
The judge ordered us to go to mediation, we went, and he was still ordered to pay child support. When we left mediation, my ex looked right at me and told me he is not paying me a penny. When I asked my lawyer how I could force my husband to pay, he said we would have to go back to mediation.
My ex has no respect for the judicial system and will not change. We are the only source of support for our daughter.
