Modifications & Enforcement

Modifications & Enforcement Family Law Attorney

What if the custody or support order no longer applies or if the other parent isn’t complying?

Modifications and enforcements refer to modifying court orders or enforcing existing court orders. When a parent does not comply with an order, it might necessitate the filing of an enforcement action. Non-compliance isn’t the legal way to go about it. If your family’s situation has changed, you should request a court order modification that reflects the current situation. Our firm can help you do this. Also keep in mind, courts only consider substantial changes when reviewing modification requests. Our firm can assist you in differentiating what the court would consider a substantial change.

What Types of Changes Do Courts Consider for Modifications?

Life is full of changes that we often don’t anticipate and requesting a modification may be appropriate. Parents typically request modifications for orders involving custody or support.

Enforcement of Court Orders Regarding Custody and Support

You may have lots of questions regarding family law disputes. Some common questions we can answer include:

The court expects parents to abide by court orders issued during divorce proceedings. For example, co-parenting often involves a visitation schedule. If one parent frequently fails to follow the court-ordered visitation rules, what can you do about it? What can you do if the other parent is not paying child support? What if the other parent isn’t paying the support amount that the court ordered?

What is your legal recourse? Legal actions geared toward enforcing compliance include:

  • Wage garnishment for support payments
  • Driver’s license suspension until the party complies
  • Professional license or certificate suspensions
  • Fish and game license suspensions
  • Court hearings to address the matter (Outcomes may include payment or time spent in jail)

Our firm can file for legal action on your behalf.
