Enforcement of Court Orders in Missouri
Is your spouse failing to comply with your court orders? You can ask the judge to force your spouse to comply, as these orders are obligations under the law. After you have had your divorce finalized, each spouse has to abide by all of the terms. Otherwise, one spouse can hold the other in contempt.
If you need assistance with enforcing a child custody order, be sure to contact Smith Law Offices, LLC. Our St. Charles family law attorney is ready to assist you!
How to Enforce Your Court Orders
You can ask the courts to help you with enforcing compliance for many matters, such as child custody or child support payments. If you believe that your spouse is acting counter to your intentions or not in the best interests of your child, this may also be a matter for the courts.
We can assist you with the following matters:
- If your spouse is failing to provide child support payments
- If your spouse is not complying with child custody terms
- If your spouse is not upholding visitation times as arranged
- If your spouse is not providing you with spousal support, if obligated
- If your spouse withheld information or did not provide the assets that were supposed to be included in the agreement
The first step is to file a petition with the family court. Then, you would need to provide an explanation as to why you believe your spouse is not complying. For this, it would be immensely helpful to have our St. Charles family lawyer guide you through this process. Finally, a court hearing will be added to the docket, and you and your spouse will need to appear before the judge to litigate the terms.
