My ex was not present for a final trial nor did he have representation. He was ordered to pay a cash distributive award to me within 60 days, and If he couldnt he had to make monthly payments within the next month with interest until paid off. My divorce, custody, child Support took 3 yrs in which I got the custody and support on my own b/c my attorney would not call me back, answer emails, and nvr prepared me for anything. He finially came through for me on this ED case. It has been over 3 months and I have not recieved anything from my ex husband. I have tried to contact my aattorney and he still will not respond. I have had MANY complaints about this attorney from other people with the same issues.
I know my ex is in contempt. I have the order here in front of me…now, my question is this…
1)What does that mean?
2)Do I need an attorney to get what I am supposed to or can I file something on my own?
Lastly, In 2008 in our support pappers, it was said that my ex would claim our oldest of 3 children on taxes. If he has declined reg visitation and I have hd them solely for the last 3 years everyday and night, ( with the exception of maybe 5 overnights total when he picked them up and dropped them off at his mothers)would I be allowed to claim all 3 on my taxes without getting in trouble?
