Have not received money, court ordered by Judge of Divorce

4 posts in this topic

Daughter (age54)  Divorce final 4 months ago.   He is court ordered to give her $60,000 which is 1/2 of his retirement account that he chose and amount of money he chose.   She is now starting on the third attorney.   First one passed the case to another attorney when she retired, 2ed attorney did some small thing and she was paid.   She now has appointment to see third attorney.   They both agreed to the divorce, no problems.no children, no assets.  Easy cut and dry, but no, now he promises every month that he will get it for her, but he does not.   Any suggestion  would be appreciated.   Could she take the court order to the judge that did the divorce?

I think what you're saying is that your daughter's divorce became final four months ago and that the divorce decree requires her ex-husband to pay her $60k.  Correct?

No assets?  You mean besides the retirement account?

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "take the court order to the judge," but her first remedy for her ex-husband's failure to comply with the divorce decree is to seek to have him held in contempt.  Did the divorce decree state a date by which the $60k had to be paid?  If so, what was that date?

 

Obviously, this is something she should discuss with her new attorney.

Do you know specifically what type of retirement account it is and is there a stipulation that the money should be paid out in one lump sum or in monthly installments over a certain period of time?
