Contempt & Enforcement Powers of the Court
Maitland Family Lawyer Filing Motions for Contempt on Your Behalf
While courts make a variety of rulings that are legally binding with respect
to divorce and family law, they often are disregarded. Fortunately, the
courts have the right to enforce their legal rulings when one party fails
to comply. If you have an ex-spouse that is refusing to follow court orders
and make payments, our family law attorney at The Troum Law Firm, P.A.
in Maitland can file a Motion for Contempt on your behalf and work to
help you obtain the support you are entitled to.
Are you looking to collect one of the following from an ex-spouse who is
not following a court order?
Enforcement Measures Taken by the Court
Simply put, contempt occurs when an individual refuses to obey an order,
mandate, or decree that is entered in by a judge. Often in family law
cases, contentious issues are decided upon, and one party may have no
desire to comply with the court's final decision. When this occurs,
a variety of civil and criminal actions can be taken against the individual
to enforce compliance. For example, if you are not receiving the proper
amount in child support payment, a judge may order monetary judgements,
garnish wages, place liens on property, suspend licenses, and take other
action that enforces compliance.
