A post-decree enforcement may be warranted in the event of:

  • Failure to pay financial support as ordered by the court
  • Refusal to turn over property that was allocated to the other spouse in a divorce settlement
  • Failure of an ex-spouse to pay debts that were allocated to them in a divorce
  • Failure to notify the other parent about important child-related issues as required in a couple's parenting plan
  • Refusing to allow children to spend parenting time with the other parent
  • Removal of children from the state without notifying the other parent or receiving approval from the court
  • Failure of a parent to reimburse the other parent for child-related expenses

Did you know your former spouse could be liable for your attorney's fees if you need to take legal action to enforce a divorce decree or child custody order? If your ex has failed to pay support, their wages may be garnished to ensure that you receive the payments that are owed. In some cases, a person may even be held in contempt of court because they willfully violated a court order, and they could be punished by fines, the suspension of their driver's license, or jail time.
