What To Do If Your Spouse’s Attorney Refuses Required Legal Documents

Listen as Kissimmee divorce attorney, Linda Gruszynski explains what to do if during the divorce process your spouse and their attorney refuse to give you all legally required documents and information needed for your case.

If this happens and you have made good faith efforts to collect this information, we will then want to file a motion to compel. If there is still no response, we will need to schedule a hearing on the motion to compel. At the hearing, an order will then entered and a time limit will be set in which the documents must be produced.

If they still do not produce the required information we will file a motion for contempt, meaning your spouse and attorney are in contempt of the court's previously issued order. Watch the video to learn more.

I wanted to thank the Draper Law firm for representing me in my recent personal injury case. It was truly a pleasure and honor to work with the firm, and I had a wonderful experience working with the staff, who was very friendly and courteous throughout the entire process.
The quality of legal service more than exceeded my expectations. The attorney answered all my questions, treated me with respect, and explained every detail - every step of the way. This was important to help me understand the process. In fact, I was made to feel like "part of the family" from the very first appointment.
I would definitely recommend the staff of attorneys at Draper Law Office to anyone who is seeking legal services, as I believe they, too, will have a great experience. In addition, should I ever need services again, Draper Law Office will be my first call.
Once again, I thank you and your staff for a wonderful and seamless experience; I would like others to also learn about it so they too can benefit from such great service.
