Once orders are established in divorce, child custody or child support, it is required that you and the other party follow them. When that fails to occur, you need assistance enforcing previous orders with a contempt of court proceeding.
Robles Family Law Firm knows that sometimes people do not keep their promises. Property transfers ordered in divorce may be long overdue or a parent never attends their supervised visitation with the children. You may also wonder when you will receive the next child support payment. In these cases, we offer the following:
Contempt of court: Order to enforce child support
When child support goes unpaid, we file for an arrearage judgment which expands collection options. We can issue additional garnishments against bank accounts or file liens on real estate. Solutions depend on your unique circumstances.
Contempt of court: Enforce visitation
Enforcing a visitation may apply to parents who never show up at all to those who pick up children late, refuse supervised visitation or attempt to show up unexpected. In serious cases, visiting parents may remove children from supervised visitation or take them across state lines. Your best solution is to establish boundaries and enforce the original order with a contempt of court proceeding.
Contempt of court: Enforce property division
Divorce involves transferring assets and if you do not receive that deed, car title or other property awarded to you, we can enforce these orders too.
