Legal Question in Family Law in Maryland

contempt of court?

csea was employed in my case, then ex's attorney requested partial payments be paid directly to her. court order was issued and 3/4 of payment went through csea and 1/4 of payment went directly to ex. in a later trial they refused to notify csea and the judge of the payments directly to her and i was found guilty of contempt for failure to pay child support and am ordered to pay this amount again. with the proper documents can i file charges against these people or file a lawsuit or what can be done?
