Jacksonville Lawyers Help Enforce Court Orders

If you got a divorce or legal separation from your spouse and he or she has disregarded the divorce agreement, you will need the legal assistance of our firm. At the Albaugh Law Firm, our Jacksonville attorneys have more than 70 years of combined experience fighting for the rights of individuals after their divorces. Contempt and enforcement actions are used to compel compliance by an individual who is not abiding by the family law court order. Enforcement actions become necessary after a final court order is issued in a family law case when one individual fails to comply with the terms.

Most contempt cases tend to be for non-payment of child support or alimony, but we also have experience handling cases associated with enforcing child custody, child visitation, and property distribution. Our firm can help you initiate an income deduction order to seek wage garnishment to collect the money you are owed. In contempt cases, you may also be able to recover attorney fees. The family court has a wide range of contempt powers that it can utilize to gain compliance of a party. If your ex-spouse is not following through with his or her end of an agreement, retain legal assistance from our firm at once.

How can the Albaugh Law Firm help?

In some cases, informal demands for compliance from one of our Jacksonville enforcement lawyers can resolve the issue. If this is an ineffective approach, court action may be required. During this process, legal representation from an experienced family law attorney is highly beneficial. At the Albaugh Law Firm, we are devoted to accomplishing the best possible outcomes for our clients. No matter which side of the case you are on, we can work hard to achieve a positive outcome.
