Phoenix Enforcement Attorneys

Phoenix Divorce Decree Enforcement Attorneys

If your ex-spouse is not doing what he or she was ordered to do in your divorce decree, you can go back to court to enforce the court order. People seek enforcement actions for many reasons. Here are some examples:

  • Your spouse is not paying child support as ordered by the divorce decree.
  • Your spouse is restricting your visitation.
  • Your spouse has refused to comply with property orders, such as not making ordered credit card, home mortgage and car loan payments.

Phoenix Child Visitation Enforcement

All parents want to protect the time that they have with their children. When the other parent interferes with that time, there are steps that you can take to rectify the situation. An example might be a parent who denies the other parent access or perhaps refuses to honor agreed-upon visitation arrangements regarding holidays or vacations.

No matter what type of child custody challenges you face, do not attempt to resolve them alone. Our skilled and experienced attorneys can help you ask the court to enforce the current child visitation order.

Phoenix Child Support Enforcement

Child support helps ensure that a child’s basic needs are met. When child support payments are delayed or are not being made at all, it can place that child in jeopardy in a number of ways ranging from:

  • Disruption of health care
  • Disruption of education
  • Disruption of extracurricular activities
  • Housing issues
  • Nutritional issues

When you are not receiving the child support that you are owed, there are steps that you can take. Our highly skilled and experienced family law attorneys can pursue your interest in court. We can petition the court for orders and contempt of court findings.

Accountability Court

If the other parent regularly fails to meet his or her child support obligations, Accountability Court is the proper place to seek help. Accountability Court is designed to hold people responsible for unfulfilled child support obligations. This court can take a number of steps ranging from requiring a weekly court appearance for the obligor to requiring a report on how many jobs you have applied for in a given week. Failure to comply with these requirements can result in an arrest for contempt of court.

Phoenix Spousal Maintenance Enforcement

Spousal maintenance or alimony can be an integral part of a spouse moving on with his or her life after a divorce. The ex-spouse receiving spousal maintenance may rely on that support. Without it, his or her financial situation may become untenable.

If you have not received the spousal maintenance that is owed to you by court order, you have the right to take action to pursue that support. One of our highly skilled and experienced family law attorneys can help you understand and protect your rights.

Options For Securing Spousal Maintenance

We can ask the court to look at tax returns and the financials, including banking records, as part of any necessary investigation. The court can also order your ex-spouse to cash out his or her 401(k) in some situations. If the court feels that your ex-spouse has evaded his or her obligations, he or she may be held in contempt of court.
