Contempt and Enforcement Attorney in the Bay Area

After going through a lengthy process, the finalization of your divorce could seem like a breath of fresh air. However, problems could still arise in the enforcement of the court’s orders. Agreeing to Property Divisions, Support Orders, and Parenting Plans in writing is one thing, but actually fulfilling them is sometimes problematic.

If your ex-partner has refused to comply with the terms of your divorce, you need the assistance of the team at Anthoor Law Group. Our Bay Area contempt and enforcement attorney can help you make sure the agreements are enforced.

Taking legal steps to enforce the terms of your divorce might be the last thing you need right now. But with a contempt and enforcement attorney on your side, securing legal relief is a smooth process.

Post-Divorce Enforcement

Anthoor Law Group understands that obtaining a divorce is a difficult emotional and legal battle. To defy the agreed terms will only add insult to injury.

Our contempt and enforcement attorneys will work to ensure that the defying party will face the consequences for failing to comply with the following:

  • Alimony or Spousal Support
  • Child Custody and Visitation Orders
  • Child Support
  • Division of Assets and Liabilities

Enforcement of Child Support and Custody

The terms of child support, custody, and visitation may be agreed upon by the parents or issued through a Court Order if no agreement has been reached. But regardless of the originating circumstances, there are parents who skip child support payments. There are also parents who intentionally keep children away from their ex-spouse despite an approved Visitation Order or shared custody agreement.

Our Bay Area contempt and enforcement attorney is experienced in handling these delicate matters and would work with you to ensure the best interests of your children come first. If you need help enforcing the terms of child custody, support, visitation, and even alimony or spousal support, contact the team at Anthoor Law Group today.

A party who fails to comply with child support can be charged with contempt of court. And if that is not enough to compel them, criminal penalties can be sought after. Refusing to pay child support is a state and federal crime, and mandatory jail times could be implemented. Talk to our Bay Area contempt and enforcement attorney today to have your case reviewed.

How Property Division Will Be Implemented

Assets considered as marital properties will be divided upon divorce. In California, these properties are split 50-50 unless a prior agreement says otherwise. But what if your ex-spouse refuses to transfer your rightful share? The non-compliant party can be charged with contempt of court. This is because once a divorce is finalized by a judge, it is considered a Court Order and must be followed strictly. But before that, you may seek advice from our Bay Area contempt and enforcement attorney to know what your other options are. In some cases, a Modification of the Division might be in order.
