Court order - now what?

I obtained a court order instructing my ex and I to go for rmediation to draft aparenting plan to be registered with OFA. She ha sknown about oit for 2 weeks, and I have sent a copy of it to her attorney, and also in my letter gave them 10 days to respond to order. What if they dont? DO I go back to Chidlrens Court and ask for investigation, or ask for a charge of contempt of court, or non-compliance ?

How long do I wait before I take the matter further? I''ve done it all so far without an attorney as I canrt afford one, so if I go back to cvourt with a complaint of non-compliance, would I be able to apply for a cost order so I can get myself an attorney?

Thanks

Once the 10 days lapsed, go back to court. Ultimately the court will implement a Parenting Plan. Best would be to contact the Legal Aid board to assist you financially and to act on your behalf.
