Court Order Enforcement
Depending on your State, enforcement of family court orders is a convoluted process in many cases. Understanding the terms of your court order is vital to ensure your rights are protected and that both parties are following the terms of the agreement.
There are different types of Family Court Orders:
- Separation agreements
- Property settlement agreements
- Child custody
- Child support
- Spousal support
Failure to comply with a court order can result in contempt, which can be both a civil and criminal action. Certain agreements, such as a separation agreement, can result in a breach of contract or other civil action to enforce the terms of the agreement.
