Where do I find contempt of court papers per my divorce decree?
Question Details: My ex would not turn over property of mine that he now says is stolen. I need to file a motion for contempt per the divorce decree but I can't find the forms online to print.
The court forms might be listed online under more specific categories.
You will need an Order to Show Cause for a hearing on your contempt of court claim. Call the court clerk to schedule the hearing. Enter the date, time, and department of the hearing on the Order to Show Cause. You will need to write a declaration signed under penalty of perjury stating the facts in support of your contempt of court claim. Any additional supporting evidence, documents, etc. ,should be included in your contempt of court claim. File all of the above and a proof of service (court form) with the court. Mail a copy of your court-filed documents to your ex to provide him with notice of the hearing. The proof of service verifies the date of mailing.
Prior to filing your documents with the court, ask the court clerk if any additional documents are required for contempt of court because the required documents may vary from state to state.
