Enforcing Child Support And Child Custody Orders
When you have earned a hard-fought victory in a family law case, you likely anticipate smooth sailing from here on out. Unfortunately, though, that does not always happen. The losing parties sometimes fail to comply with their obligations. If the other party refuses to fulfill his or her legal duties, court intervention may become necessary.
Enforcing Child Support, Child Custody And More In Minnesota
Generally, a person who has fallen behind on spousal support or child support will be notified of the debt and given the chance to pay it off or arrange a payment plan to get current. If these efforts fail, you may be able to take steps to enforce your ex’s legal obligations. Enforcing family court orders generally requires filing an action for contempt of court. You may have to attend a court hearing to present evidence and arguments in support of your position. Our attorney, Joseph Marvin, excels at presenting compelling cases in court, using time-tested strategies to advance clients’ goals. He can help you present a persuasive case.
Minnesota courts have vast tools at their disposal to ensure that parties comply with court orders. If a court determines that the other party violated a court order, it may impose penalties to enforce compliance. These penalties can include:
- Changes to the child custody arrangement in favor of the complying party
- Steep monetary fines
- Driver’s license suspension
- Wage garnishment and seizure or levy of financial assets
- Jail time
