How do you know that she is carrying your daughter? You may have grounds to move for contempt or enforcement of your divorce order. If you would like a free consultation, please call me at 850-778-1355.

I would call it contempt. I suggest you file a contempt/enforcement action and have her pay you back the money you would have received or reduce your child support to cover the loss.

This can be enforced by a Motion for Contempt or Enforcement. Take a copy of the Final Judgment and have an attorney review the matter.
