What Court Orders Can Be Enforced

To better understand the impact of a court order, think of it as a private law that applies to the named parties. They are legally bound to comply, and they have the legal right to seek enforcement if the other does not. Some of the divorce and family law topics that are subject to enforcement by the court are:

  • Property division, if an ex-spouse does not make proper transfers of ownership, title, or interest after the divorce is final;
  • Alimony, when the payor stops making payments per the terms of the order;
  • Child custody, such as where a parent makes a decision individually when both are required to participate; and,
  • Visitation and parenting time, if one parent continually fails with timely pickups, drop-offs, or scheduling.

Note that child support obligations are usually handled through automatic withdrawals from the payor’s wages by the employer or enforced through other legal mechanisms. However, you may need to go to court for enforcement in certain situations.

  • Preparing the petition for enforcement; and,
  • Representing you during a contested hearing on enforcement issues.
