I've taken my $8K separation agreement down to the courthouse so that I can enforce what he agreed to, HOWEVER, unless the issues are financial (CS and SS), or have to do with custody and access, then it's not worth the paper its printed on.
Duty counsel told me point blank that I could not make him do anything in the agreement (other than the above). WTF?
What's the point of puttieler?ng everything in writing if he can arbitrariliy decide to ignore it?
Duty Counsel also told me to take "the high road" and file myself and go for costs - which is exactly what he is supposed to do!
That dang high road needs to be blasted apart as far as I'm concerned... my lawyer should have advised me of this - why waste everyone's time and trouble - not to mention the $$$$$$ and stress?
Options? Anyone? Bueler?

The court system is not fair. Justice has to be bought. For those of us who can't afford justice, we have to make choices of either learning to fight on our own or walking away.
Next time you're in front of a judge, ask for everything to be enforced by law and police or agency.

Once it's registered with the courts, it's an order. If he's not following it, then it's contempt. You won't get traction the first couple times, but eventually the judge will get tired of him being stupid and start laying the smackdown.

The legal wheels are slow and rusty and covered with molasses, so they take their sweet time to turn. In the grand scheme of things, 30 days here or there isn't a lot.

and as for divorce, spend the 120 and just file yourself.
