My cook county IL divorce decree specifies that my spouse has to divide our remaining joint assets (under his control), and has to buy out my share of the house.
the decree specified the date when my ex was supposed to make the payments to me.
the deadline has passed, and my ex has not divided the assets, despite repeated written requests.
i have 3 questions:
1) whats the best legal approach to forcing my ex to comply with the divorce decree and pay me my share of the joint assets?
2) if i need to file a motion for contempt, how do i do this if i am acting pro se? are there any sample motions out there for me to use?
3) is there something special i need to do if i wish to represent myself in court?
thanks- i need the advice!
