Hello, I was recently found in contempt of court for a technicality matter. As a result, the judge ordered me to pay funds to my ex towards the attorney fees.
However, my ex refuses to pay child support and is currently several thousand dollars in arrears. I have a pending Contempt Motion for this but it has not been heard yet by the judge.
My fear is that if I pay these funds to my ex, that they will not be returned. Is there a way I can put these funds in an escrow account pending the outcome and/or appeal of this Contempt charge against me?
Should this somehow be mentioned in the Contempt motion I file?
Thank you very much.
