Founding lawyer Josh Carpenter works with your family to ensure that your right to spousal or child support is recognized by the court. Some of the information that the enforcement of orders motion will contain include:
- Which provisions within the court order were violated
- How the other party has violated the court ordered provisions
- If the violation is financial, what amount is owed
- What you would like to achieve as a result of the violation
The enforcement of orders request can also be entered to enforce a child custody or alimony arrangement. It can also address a failure of a spouse to follow a court-ordered property division decree. Although you may not be able to retrieve the property in question, we can seek to have you compensated financially for any items that cannot be retrieved.
