Enforcing Family Law Court Orders
Child support and spousal support orders can become a matter of contention after the order has been issued by the court. The supporting party may intentionally or unintentionally fall behind on payments due to disagreement with the amount owed or because of other circumstances, such as job loss, remarriage with additional children to support, or other factors. On the other hand, the supported party may feel that he or she deserves more money than is ordered and is demanding it be paid without any authority to do so. This kind of conflict may need to be settled by a judge in a court hearing.
Child custody can also become a contentious matter between parents after the divorce or a paternity action has been finalized. This generally occurs between parents who are antagonistic or combative or for a parent who may have disagreed with the terms of the order in the first place. These parents may violate or ignore designated parenting plan schedules, such as refusing the other parent allotted time with a child, refusing to return a child, always being late in doing so per the plan’s instructions, or failing to pick up a child when it is their responsibility to do so.
Violating restraining orders can also lead to the need for enforcement by the court.
Parties who violate any of these orders may face consequences by the court. Those who legitimately cannot meet the terms of custody or support orders may need to seek a modification of the current order. All changes to family court orders must be done through the court; verbal agreements between parties are not lawful nor enforceable.
