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?
