Joliet Lawyers for Pre- and Post-Judgement Order Enforcement
Tenacious Family Law Attorneys in Will County
At the Davi Law Group, our experienced divorce attorneys have helped hundreds of clients throughout the region enforce pre- and post-judgement court orders. We understand the necessity of an aggressive approach to identifying and resolving possible order violations related to divorce and family law. Failure of a party to comply with a court order issued prior or subsequent to a decree of divorce can result in fines, wage garnishments, and potential criminal prosecution or incarceration. If your former partner is currently in violation of an order related to spousal maintenance, child support, custody, or visitation, we are prepared to go to work on your behalf.
Willful Disregard or Poor Communication?
As with most matters of law, the particular circumstances of your situation will dictate the most appropriate course of action. Our team is prepared to fully investigate your case to determine if the violation of the order is the result of deliberate activity. In certain situations, violations may be the result of significant changes in the life of the other party, and he or she is making good faith efforts to remain in compliance. Changes such as the loss or reduction of employment, health concerns, or serious injury, can necessitate a post-judgment modification.
Whatever the situation, the party responsible for complying with the order must bear responsibility for reporting such changes, and we will help secure all available avenues of remedy provided by law. If we find that your ex-spouse has been willfully violating an existing order, we will petition the court action in your best interests. Our attorneys have experience in enforcing payment of child and spousal support and in collecting overdue payments known as arrearages. We also are equipped to protect your visitation rights and to ensure the proper disposition of marital property, as provided by your divorce agreement.
Relief Through the Enforcement of Court Orders
When your ex-spouse is in violation of a court order or your divorce decree, chances are good that you are the one who is affected most. When you need a voice in legal matters, we can provide it for you. We offer the determined, yet responsible representation you need to get the results you deserve.
Whether you require assistance in the enforcement of child support orders or in protecting your rights to visitation with your child, we are prepared to help. Once ordered, child support payments are expected to be made, regardless of any external factors, including the actions of the recipient party. Potential recrimination for violating a support order can result in contempt proceedings, probation, and imprisonment. While a party does not have the right to stop paying support if his or her access to the child is being inappropriately denied, he or she may have recourse under the law. The offended party may file a petition alleging denial or abuse of visitation. The possible consequences for such violations are similar to those for missed support payments: probation, imprisonment, and the suspension of driving privileges.
