Q: I need a quick answer to make sure I’m not incriminating myself in a existing case
Just it clearly states that since the other part was found in contempt she has to return the children to me immediately because she has shown that she is capable of doing so but in the meantime she wants to turn it into a situation where she wants me to do what’s ordered of her. Can that affect my situation by not complying or since the order is hers to bare then she should do so herself?
A: Check the wording of the Court Order carefully, it only applies to the Party stated therein, and only requires them to do what is stated. In other words, if only you filed for contempt against her, then the Order that arose from that would likely only apply to her, unless the Court ordered otherwise. If she fails to timely comply, file a Motion to Enforce Contempt Order and the Judge will act to protect your interests. Good Luck.
