Enforce Compliance with Divorce Orders & Agreements

The terms of a divorce agreement are legally binding for both individuals involved. Even though changing situations may require a modification to previously established matters – such as child support payments and custody rights – both former partners must abide by the terms of the existing agreement until those modifications are made.

Unfortunately, it is far too common for one spouse to ignore the terms of a divorce agreement, particularly in regards to support payments.

As our legal team at Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, well knows, there are many people in Southern California who suffer frustration and harm as a result of their former partner not abiding by the stipulations of their divorce agreements.

In many cases, the only way for the other spouse to get justice in these situations is to pursue legal enforcement actions. By taking enforcement action, people are often able to get their former spouse to follow their divorce agreements, something that is necessary to their well-being.

Enforcement Action:  How It Can Protect Your Rights

Once the court has decided that someone is responsible for paying certain debts, child support, spousal support, or agreeing to child visitation, if your spouse fails to meet that obligation, you can file a motion to show cause for contempt.

Enforcement Actions may be necessary to uphold:

Alimony payments
Child support payments
Child visitation rights
Child custody schedules
Property division agreements

Simply filing a motion for contempt does not automatically lead to serious consequences. Often, the judge will give the accused spouse a second chance to make up for the infraction and do what the order requires.

However, if they fail to comply within the allotted time given (without a legitimate reason or excuse), then there can be both civil and criminal penalties enforced by the court.

Penalties can include:

Order to Pay the Accusing Party’s Attorney Fees
Child custody schedules
Compensatory custody time
Jail Time

Since the goal of a contempt action is to ensure compliance with a court order, if the offense is withholding spousal support or child support, then the court is unlikely to pursue further punishment once the back support has been paid.

The court may, however, order the spouse that is in contempt of court to pay a little extra for their support payments until they’re caught up.
