Orange County Visitation Enforcement Lawyer
It is important to show that the infraction is habitual. We counsel clients on how to document every instance, with precise dates and times, preferably with witnesses.
A motion for contempt of court can be filed on your behalf to force compliance with requirements of a court order. The court can enforce its orders by levying fines, by assessing attorneys’ fees to be paid by the offending party and by jail time in the case of serious disregard of court orders.
Failure to pay as required by the court can also lead to seizure of bank accounts, automobiles or other property and the suspension of drivers’ licenses. We can review your situation and recommend the most effective and cost-efficient steps to take.
If the court agrees that you did not receive the amount of visitation time with your child that is stipulated in your divorce decree, it can award you extra time or modify the orders permanently.
Don’t continue to ignore or argue about court orders that are not being followed. We can take action and get results. Call us or use our contact form to schedule a free consultation. We will review your situation and recommend the best steps to take.
