Enforcement of Court Orders in GA
Dallas, GA Divorce Attorney
When a divorce settlement is finalized, the orders that comprise it are meant to be followed. When one parent does not adhere to the visitation schedule or gets behind on his or her payments of child support or spousal support, it can cause undue stress on the entire family. Failure to comply with the agreed upon visitation schedule can include not showing up for visitation without prior consent and even refusing to allow visitation to occur.
Violating the court orders in a divorce settlement can result in fines and, in some cases, jail time. Many order violations can be resolved outside of the court system. This method is generally less time-consuming and more economical for all involved. If the matter cannot be handled outside of court, however, the individual affected by the violation may file a motion to enforce with the court.
Anyone that is being made to face added stress and undue hardship sue to an ex-spouse violating the divorce settlement should not hesitate in speaking with a Dallas, GA divorce attorney from the firm.
