Ex refuses to comply with visitation and telephone contact after case is closed

by Alonzo
(Tavares,FL)

I need to file a motion to compel compliance against my ex who refuses to let me speak to my children when I call. I also have a court ordered supervised visitation of three hours per week and at present, due to financial and supervisor scheduling limitations, can only see my kids one hour every other week. I have asked on several occasions for the spouse to discuss with me some alternatives to the present supervisor (ie: having someone else supervise at much lower cost and more amicable schedule). My problem is that the case has been closed. I am not sure if I should re-open the case or pay the filing fees and such to establish a new case. Can you or anyone help me with this?

Motion for Contempt/ Enforcement
by: FALDP Staff

Alonzo,
Family court cases are frequently re-opened for modification or enforcement. If you need to enforce what is already in the court order, then it is a Motion for Civil Contempt/ Enforcement. If you need to change (modify) what is in the court order, then you need to file a Supplemental Petition for Modification of Child Custody, Timesharing, and Other Relief. Both of these documents are available on the Florida Supreme Court's site - www.flcourts.org . And you will need to file additional forms along with either of them. If you need help preparing your documents, please contact us at 800-515-0496.
