I have a rather short question with a long explanation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Divorce was final in February 2010
2 children 13 and 9
My question is this; what do I need to do to file a motion to enforce the decree, and how seriously does the 303rd district court take the motions.
To this point, the ex has blatantly disregarded a few items on the decree. Mainly talking about myself and the ex's own parents in a "disparaging manner or in a manner which might tend to undermine the love and affection that the child feels tor either parent or either parentís family". Proof being several text messages to the oldest child backed up on SMS box, and several comments and questions by both children. The ex's parents are in total dismay over the banishment from their daughter, and express concern over her temperament. We also had a social study done (but never made it to court) that expressed concern with the ex's temper and immaturity.
The second thing is it states that we each have one child to use as a dependant for tax purposes. She decided this year to use both kids as dependants, causing my tax info to be rejected. I have called the IRS and asked them what to do, and they told me that they do not follow a divorce decree, only a line of questions. After the line of questions they determine who will and will not be able to claim the kids. She mentioned having the ex sign a form 8332 releasing the rights to claim one of the kids.
There are also several occasions of failing to allow access to the kids during my scheduled times due to her being angry with myself or someone in my family. These are backed up by several text messages and e-mails.
Bottom line, I cannot afford an attorney, and I plan on doing this on my own. Any advice from anyone here on how to stop the abuse of the divorce decree, and make sure that this never happens again?
