Filing pro se for contempt of court
      #614955 - 12/26/09 05:34 PM

My ex has violated the court order that grants me custody of my daughter on weekends. She has done this four times in two years. My attorney doesn't want to go to court to complain because he thinks the court will find for my ex, citing that the infractions were "in the best interest of the child."
I don't see how one can perpetually hide behind that clause and flout the court order. I want to file a grievance with the court myself. My attorney is obviously pissing his pants at the prospect of charging my ex with contempt, so I want to do it myself. Can I? Why does the clerk of court send me away each time, telling me I need an attorney to do that? What gives?

Never mind. I'd have to fire my attorney first, and in that the clerk of court and even our own legal aid society is giving me the runaround on just the contempt filing, I can see I will never get anywhere in this good ol' boy's legal system on my own. Gotta pay the devil to make a deal with him. Judges are puppets, lawyers pull the strings. Even I can see that now.
