Enforcing Previous Orders
Our attorneys can assist you with the paperwork filings required to start the motions and manage any required responses. We will investigate the details of your court order and show how the other party failed to meet the expected terms. Our seasoned lawyers can guide you through the hearings and work to get you a favorable settlement or court order.
Though our legal fees are competitive, we also offer limited scope representation, which lets clients choose the legal services they want. In some circumstances, a court may make the opposing party pay your legal fees in an enforcement claim.
The Consequences of Failing to Follow Court Orders
If a judge decides that a person did not meet the terms of their court order, a judgment can include fines, back payments, payment of legal costs, and even jail time.
For unpaid child support payments, the parent who fails to pay can face:
- Garnished wages and removal of money from a bank account
- Unpaid fees reported on credit reports
- Suspension of a driver's license
- Liens against homes, property, and vehicles
- Interception of federal and state tax refunds and lottery winnings
We represent clients accused of not meeting the terms of their court order and work to get them a favorable outcome. If you are not paying your child support or alimony payments, we can help you with a court order modification.
