I would suggest asking the mediator to file a certificate with the Court indicating that you attempted to schedule the mediation and paid your portion of the fees. If that does not occur, then I would file a status report with the Court stating everything you have done up to this point. Regarding... Read more »
We've been having issues we have 50/50 custody and due to all the drama last week I made him meet me at the police station not even 5 minutes away from where we're supposed to meet for the parenting plan but now he's telling me he's going to make me go all the way to Arvada... Read more »

Having someone held in contempt of court would be for violating court orders. Whether it is a legal separation or a divorce does not matter. The key question in this situation is how long did he have to remove you from the title of the truck per the court order. If he has failed to do so by the... Read more »
There is an order for reimbursement within 30 days, yet other parent waits up to 1 1/2 years to submit receipts for repayment for child's medical care. What, if any, is an actual and acceptable time frame? Not to mention multiple duplicate statements with no proof of payment or prior conferral.

A continuance can be granted by a Court for any number of reasons but usually it needs to be for good cause. The granting or denial of a request to continue a hearing is within the discretion of the Court.
