How Are Orders Enforced?
There are a number of different methods the court can use to enforce a family law agreement or order. How they go about enforcing the order will depend on the unique circumstances of the case. For example, if it involves child support, they may take action to garnish your wages. In cases of visitation, you may be threatened with not seeing your child for a period of time.
In general, the court uses the following enforcement strategies:
- Warnings – Some judges may choose to begin with a formal written warning
- Wage Garnishments – This involves withholding wages until the orders are met
- Property Liens – A property lien can impede a person from selling or refinancing a property
- Fines – In addition to any back-due support payments, the judge may also impose a fine
If you have been hit with any of these enforcement methods or want to ensure the court takes the appropriate action, be sure to call on our Tampa family lawyers. We are here to help protect your best interests.
