Enforcing Court Orders in Lawrenceville

Lawrenceville Divorce Lawyer Serving Gwinnett County

Various legal actions can be taken against an ex-spouse who fails to comply with a divorce-related court order. If your ex-spouse is violating your divorce settlement by refusing to pay spousal support or child support, isn't dividing your marital assets as agreed, or is in non-compliance with your custody and visitation arrangement, contact a Lawrenceville divorce attorney at The Law Office of Robert L. Booker for legal advice. Our firm can discuss all of your legal options, such as filing a motion for contempt of court. If it is determined that the settlement agreement has been violated, your ex-spouse can face penalties such as jail time and fines.

Compliance with Court Orders

A divorce settlement is legally binding. When an ex-spouse violates the terms of a divorce agreement, her or she can be held accountable for their actions. Our firm will take whatever legal measures are necessary to enforce compliance with your divorce decree. In cases involving non-payment of support, federal and state laws allow enforcement actions such as:

  • Driver's license suspension
  • Bank account seizure
  • Wage garnishment
  • Withholding payments from unemployment or workers' compensation benefits
  • Interception of any income tax refunds
  • U.S. passport suspension

If your ex-spouse cannot be located, is more than $5,000 behind on child support payments, and hasn't made any payments in six months, he or she can also be listed as one of Georgia's Most Wanted Child Support Evaders. Our firm is available to assist you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We strive to provide our clients with the highest level of service possible, and will diligently protect your rights and interests.

Contact a Lawrenceville divorce lawyer for legal advice and uncompromising representation if your ex-spouse is not complying with a court order.
