Q: I've never received the final divorce decree. Can I be in contempt for non-payment?
We agreed outside of court with no lawyer what bills to split up. However she has told me that some of the cards I didn't agree to are my responsibility. I've maintained the child support we agreed on, but can not pay all of these within my income means.
A: Hire an attorney to help you get a copy of the decree and if it was changed without your knowledge they will be able to help you figure out what to do next.
A: You can get a copy of the decree from the Court Clerk. If it's not what you agreed to, You should consult an experienced Family Law Attorney, in your area, for help with this problem.
