What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Florida
I filed a Motion for Contempt on January 10th. Ex has failed and refused to comply with the terms of MSA - not paying spousal support (made one payment in September, divorce final in August 2013, now 4 months behind), didn't pay any of $2000 lump sum due 11/30/2013, not paying loan he agreed to pay off (4 months behind).
Order of Referral to General Magistrate filed 02/24/14.
Ex filed objection to Order of Referral on 03/03/14.
I called the Clerk's Office this morning when I saw his objection on the docket. I asked how he could file an objection to something that I hadn't received a copy of yet (I live in town where Court is, he lives in Iowa). The Clerk advised that the Order of Referral had been mailed but could not supply a date. When I asked how ex could file an objection to something that it would appear hadn't been received yet by either party, she said that he was probably following things online.
It is not uncommon at all in Florida for a General Magistrate to hear Motions on Contempt in Family Law cases.
Does an objection like this have to be specific in anyway?
Can I object to his objection?
Thank you in advance for any help
