Noblesville Indiana Divorce LawyerQuestion:

Would my ex-wife have to pay my divorce attorney fees if I have to take her back to court for contempt and she was found guilty?

She agreed to pay me a distributive award for marital debts within 30 days from the date the divorce was finalized. The deadline has passed, she has not paid, and I cannot get in touch with her.

Also, I believe she is about to file bankruptcy. There is specific language in the agreement that the distributive award should not be included in any bankruptcy claims, but my fear is she is going to try.

What are my options? If I have to re-hire legal counsel, would she have to pay my legal fees since she is in contempt of the agreement?

Houston divorce lawyerQuestion:

I need instructions on how to enforce my divorce decree that concerns the clause discussing the car title.

I was awarded the vehicle, but the car title is in my name, my ex-wife's name, and my ex's mother's name. My ex-wife has signed the title, but my ex-mother-in-law is refusing to sign.

How can I enforce my decree that calls for my ex-wife's mother to sign the car title?

Omaha Nebraska Divorce LawyerQuestion:

My divorce decree and parenting plan state that my ex-wife and I share major decision making and we are to share auto expenses.

She purchased a car for our child without my consent and after I told her numerous times prior to the purchase that I could not afford a car or the expenses attached to it.

Does she have any right to purchase a car without my consent and try and stick me with half the bill if we are supposed to share decision making?

violate morality clauseQuestion:

I would like some clarification on interpreting a divorce decree that includes a morality clause concerning overnight guests and cohabitation.

My boyfriend has a clause in his divorce decree that states "no party shall have overnight guests of the opposite sex to whom they are not married or related by blood or marriage while the minor children are in the home during periods of physical custody and/or parenting time."

Can he be found in contempt even if we are living together since technically I'm not a "guest" but rather sharing the same residence? What would a punishment be if he was found in contempt?

And how would someone be able to prove contempt? Would the children have to testify about the living arrangement?
