Contempt and Enforcement
For those who are doing without the alimony or child support they need or for others who are being denied the
parenting time they are entitled to, I can help.
A post-decree modification may be necessary to allow for changing economic or health conditions. Perhaps a modification has been agreed to, but compliance has not been forthcoming.
Regardless of your situation, I work hard toward justice for your unique situation. My goal is to strive for mutual cooperation on all provisions of a divorce settlement agreement.
If you have waited long enough for your ex-spouse to fulfill settlement obligations, call my office. I will pursue your goals in negotiation or litigation, effectively and efficiently.

“Contempt” usually involves money, and a court order to a former spouse to force them to pay support. Enforcement of that order will work against a parent who fails to comply with support guidelines, or repeatedly denies child visitation time to an ex-spouse.
Any willful, consistent disregard of a divorce decree can be grounds for a motion seeking enforcement of an order. The other party can be held in contempt by a court, and risk harsh punishments. A contempt charge for non-payment is serious business. If you are still waiting for the alimony or child support you deserve, take action now.
