I have been served with papers regarding a contempt of a contempt charge. Totally unfounded and I have proof to respond. The documents mention failure to contact non-custodial parent as required in the court order (a custody issue), but no date is given for this charge. Certain dates are required for contact. Do I just show up at court with my phone records and that will be enough? I don’t even know what dates are in question as they weren’t specified. Seems that should be mentioned.
Also, the motion specifies I am resonsible for the charges by the sheriff’s department to serve this motion. I received it in the mail, however, I’m not sure if another motion will be served via the sheriff. If I am found not in contempt, I am not liable for these charges, am I?
If I am not found in contempt, can I petition the court for the Plaintiff to pay loss of wages, travel costs (7 hour drive-gas money I don’t have) and false accusations? What are my rights?
