Child Custody

When a court issues an order related to child support, spousal support, child custody, visitation or another family law issue, that order must be adhered to. If a court order is not followed, various enforcement methods are available in order to correct the problem. The assistance of an experienced family law attorney can be valuable in some enforcement situations.

Enforcement of Child Support and Spousal Support Orders

If you are a single parent or an individual who has been through a divorce, child support or spousal support payments may be an essential part of the income you rely on to pay your bills and take care of your children. When these payments aren't made as required by court order, we can help you through enforcement methods that include:

  • Income Withholding Order, or a wage garnishment that is used to garnish a payer's wages
  • The seizing of assets after filing the appropriate writ
  • Opening a case with the Department of Child Support Services, which can seize tax returns, seize passports, and even issue bench warrants for a person's arrest

Enforcement of Child Custody and Visitation Orders

Child custody and visitation orders are issued by a court to prescribe living arrangements and parenting time, including the amount of time each parent can spend with the children. Through negotiation, court petitions and other means, our attorneys can help you resolve situations where your child's or children's other parent is not following these orders. This may include denial of visits, refusal to adhere to schedules and unilateral decisions about your children.
