a payment in two years. I filed a motion to get my case back before a judge, a hearing and responsive pleading is in week. My problem is a deadbeat dad has hired a private attorney, he is claiming no job now for over ten years, and to make matters worst the states attorney ib illinois isnt adopting the case any longer. What are my legal options? Please help!
go hire your own lawyer. do a petition to hold him in contempt for not paying. you cannot do this yourself against a lawyer.
We cannot walk you through what you need to do. Hire your own lawyer. Have your lawyer seek civil contempt and other relief. If found in contempt, your fees must be paid by your ex. There are many good lawyers near you. Consult with one or more and hire one - ASAP.
