ENFORCEMENT OF COURT ORDERS


ORLANDO DIVORCE ATTORNEY FIGHTS FOR YOUR INTERESTS

Many family law issues involve court orders for child custody, child support, alimony, and protection against domestic violence. Individuals who receive these orders are required by law to comply unless a modification is made. If you receive child or spousal support, or if you are protected by a restraining order, it is important that the other party continues to comply. If you stop receiving support or if a restraining order is ignored, you may need to approach the court and request enforcement.

WHEN CAN AN ORDER BE ENFORCED?

Willful failure to comply with support orders will result in a contempt hearing. In other cases, the supporting party may fall behind on their payments due to lack of employment, job loss, or insufficient income. In cases such as this, the court can require the supporting party to seek employment, including undergoing training or work experience programs in an effort to obtain adequate income. Individuals who intentionally fail to comply with enforcement can be held in contempt of court. The only other option available to resolve an inability to pay support is to obtain a modification that reduces or eliminates the support payments.
