How to Enforce a Court Order?

In order to enforce a family court order, you will need to approach the court with evidence to prove that the other party has not been compliant or followed the terms of the court order. If you are looking to enforce child support or spousal support, then you will need proof that the other party has continuously skipped payments. If you are looking to enforce child custody or visitation, then you will need evidence of the other parent barring you from exercising your right to spend time with your child.

Contact us at (908) 274-3028 now! You can rely on our team to help you enforce a custody or support order. 

Consequences for Court Order Violation

Court orders are legally binding documents that consist of terms that both parties are obliged to keep. In the event that one party violates the agreement, the other party may file a motion to enforce litigant's rights. A hearing will be held to determine if the party has failed to comply with the court order.

If the individual is found to be guilty, he or she may have to:

  • Go to jail
  • Pay fines
  • Begin abiding by the terms of the decree
  • Have wages garnished from their paycheck

Whether you are the accuser or the accused, you will need to take the proper steps to build a strong case. Our skilled Somerset County enforcement attorneys are equipped with the necessary knowledge and tools to help ensure the protection of your rights during this time.
