Enforcement of Child Support and Alimony Law
Failure by parties to comply with orders for child support and alimony often times cause extreme duress to the party relying on that payment to support his or her basic needs. The most effective means of compelling this payment is to motion the court for an order enforcing the prior agreement. If the party with whom the prior agreement is being forced upon is non-compliant, they can be held in contempt. In many instances, the other party may be responsible for your legal fees. At Douglas E. Spiegel P.A., we have extensive experience at guiding clients through this process.
In addition, we advise people facing enforcement proceedings who need advice and legal assistance with working out the details of a payment plan or revised visitation arrangement. Enforcement actions can also help parents whose child custody or visitation rights are unreasonably frustrated by the other parent.
