Enforcing a Court Order After Divorce

Need help enforcing a court order in Tampa, FL?

The enforcement of the obligations and responsibilities set forth in family court orders and agreements is often extremely difficult. The extreme frustration and inconvenience mothers and fathers experience when the other party does not comply with the terms of a child custody order or a support order can become a catalyst for a total breakdown of communication and cooperation between the parties.

If children are involved, it is the children who suffer when the parents stop cooperating. At our firm, Tampa Divorce Attorney Catherine Real focuses her efforts on the facilitation of agreement between ex-spouses and encourages cooperation. But when such efforts fail at reaching a satisfactory level of compliance, a motion requesting the court to enforce an agreement or a court order is sometimes necessary.

What to Do When Support or Visitation Orders are Not Being Followed

Failure to pay child support, alimony or the failure to grant access to the children for scheduled visitations are the most common subjects of contempt motions. Once filed, a hearing on the motion will be scheduled, allowing both parties to state their side of the story to the judge. Non-payment of support can result in the payor being confined to jail while they make arrangements to catch up with their payments.

The failure to comply with custody orders can result in confinement as well and a reversal of custodial rights. Catherine has been practicing family law in Tampa since 1979. She has the experience and expertise unmatched in the legal community and has the utmost respect of her peers and clients alike.
