Resolving Contempt Issues & Court Order Disputes

When an ex-spouse or parent fails to follow the order given by the court, it can be a very frustrating process. How do you hold them accountable? Do you have methods for making them follow it? Will they face penalties for ignoring a court order? All these questions can be difficult to answer without the assistance of a seasoned family lawyer in Panama City.

Our former can help you enforce an order against a former spouse or partner who has failed to:

In many cases, it may require court intervention to get the other party to respond appropriately. This is where enforcement comes in. If the judge finds that the individual blatantly violated the order without any justified cause, or is in contempt of a decree, they can use various means to punish them or ensure they pay back what they owe in full. For example, some judges may use wage garnishments if a parent fails to pay child support or fine them for violating a child custody agreement.
