Support & Custody Enforcement Attorney in Valencia

Valencia Divorce Lawyer

After an Order is signed by the judge in a family law proceeding, the parties are required to
follow the order or risk being in contempt of court.

The first thing to be certain of is what the actual order states. If the other party is violating the
court order, you have options, depending of the order that is being violated.

Visitation Order Violations

If your visitation schedule is not being followed by the other parent
you can:

  • Request that your local police department enforce the order,
  • Request assistance from the district attorney (through the Child Abduction and Recovery Unit) or
  • Have an attorney file an action for contempt with the court. This is handled as a request that the court enforce the prior order and find that the other parent willfully disobeyed the prior court order.

Support order violations:

  • Have an attorney file an action for contempt with the court.
  • Have the court issue an earnings assignment order, so that the support payment will be taken directly from the paycheck of the payor party.
  • Request a writ of execution so that the court can order the liquidation of the payor party’s asset(s) and have the outstanding payments due provided to the owed party.
  • Motion in order to determine arrearages will be instituted in the event the parties do not agree on the support owed.
