Response to motion for civil contempt

by Louise
(Pinellas County, FL)

My ex husband has filed a motion for civil contempt with the court over the time sharing on our court ordered parenting plan. I am not in violation of what I am being accused of. I would like to submit a response or answer to the court, but I can't find the proper form. Could you please advise the form number for responding to a motion for civil contempt?

I am in Pinellas County Florida.
The court has not issued a court date or proceeded in any way since his motion was turned in to the court, but I would like to respond before a court hearing is put in place.

Thanks.

No specific form

Hi Louise,
We checked on the Florida Supreme Court's site and there is no specific form to respond to a Motion for Civil Contempt/ Enforcement. Since it is a motion, you would generally file an objection to the motion. Unfortunately, there are not any specific forms for pro se litigants for objections either. My suggestion is that if you need to respond, use the same format as an answer, there are several types of answers on the Florida Supreme Court's site - www.flcourts.org - and change the title of the pleading to objection to motion for civil contempt. Then address each numbered paragraph one by one with corresponding numbered paragraphs. I am not an attorney, and please do not think this is legal advice. It is merely my suggestion.
