Enforcement of Family Court Orders in Framingham

Let Our Experienced Legal Team Protect Your Rights

Once a family law judge issues a court order, the parties involved most obey its terms of child custody, child support, or property division. Unfortunately, there are many cases where one party fails to comply with the orders, causing significant financial harm to the other. Since these court orders are enforceable, those who have been wronged are allowed to pursue legal action.

At Barach Law Group LLC, our Framingham family law attorneys are committed to ensuring your court orders are followed and hold the other party accountable for their insubordination. On the other hand, if you are unable to fulfill your obligations in the order, we can apply for a modification to make your life easier. Whatever the case may be, our legal team can help you get the best outcome possible.

Enforcement & Contempt of Court

When a party fails to follow court orders, they can be held in contempt of court to enforce fulfilling the court orders. Once the complaint is received, the court will schedule a hearing where both parties have a chance to present their case. If the court sides with the complaining party, the delinquent party will be found in contempt of court.

The following are the common types of enforcement options available when a party is found to be in contempt of court:

  • Court order for immediate payment of any alimony or child support payment that is past due
  • Make up time for any missed visitation time
  • Wage garnishment of the delinquent party’s paycheck
  • Interception of tax refund
  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Jail time

Ready to Protect Your Rights Today

The first thing we will do is draft a demand letter to the other party, warning them that if they continue to ignore the terms of a court order, you will file a legal complaint. Although that is enough to achieve positive results, more drastic measures may need to be taken if they continue to willfully violate the order. We will do whatever it takes to obtain the justice you deserve.
