Protecting Your Rights In Divorce
If your ex-spouse is making mandatory payments in lesser amounts than ordered, is making them late or not at all, I can petition for enforcement. This may involve garnishment or other methods. The way in which the payments are usually made – directly or through the court – will determine which procedure will be most effective to employ.

Enforcement options are also available if your ex-spouse has not transferred property as ordered or is interfering with your visitation rights. If a motion for contempt is granted, heavier consequences may follow, such as bank account levies and seizure of tax returns. Generally, the actions taken against your ex-spouse gradually increase in severity until the situation is rectified.
