Unfortunately, being granted a divorce does not always mean all of your family law issues are over. The reality is that circumstances can substantially change over time from when the divorce was granted, and everyone does not follow court orders. As a result, there are many situations that can require post-divorce legal actions.
When a parent fails to comply with a child custody agreement or order, it may be necessary to pursue legal enforcement of the terms to protect you and your child’s best interests. Depending upon the circumstance, we can petition the court on your behalf to:
- have your rights enforced,
- find your ex-partner in contempt of court,
- pay attorney’s fees, and
- seek jail time (in some relatively rare cases).
If you need assistance enforcing an order related to child custody, visitation, or support, I invite you to call me to schedule a free or paid consultation. As an experienced modification and enforcement attorney, I can help.
