Failure to follow a settlement agreement and final decree can result in the court taking drastic measures. It is important to remember that if you are not receiving the proper support payments, of if your court-ordered access to your child (visitation) is being denied, contact an experienced lawyer. Many individuals wish to take matters into their own hands by withholding visitation or not respecting their financial obligations. In truth, by doing this, you are also in violation of the divorce judgment.
Most often, the party that fails to follow the divorce decree will be held in contempt. In addition to contempt, we can pursue income deduction orders — also referred to as income withholding orders — and the garnishment of bank accounts. This can be a complex process, so if you are struggling because of failure to follow a divorce order, contact an experienced attorney today.
