Contempt And Enforcements

After structuring a child support, child custody or spousal support agreement, you are required to follow the court order. Although there are laws to ensure that support arrives uninterrupted, there are still occasions where a parent or former spouse will fail to pay the agreed amount.

With representation from the Law Office of Marla Zide, LLC, you can hold a spouse or former spouse accountable for failing to pay support agreements.

Serious Consequences For Civil Contempt

For spouses and parents who try to avoid paying court-ordered support, the consequences can be severe. In many cases, a modification of the custody or support agreement will restructure amounts so payments are manageable.

No matter the circumstances of your support agreement, our attorney can help you avoid falling into delinquency while structuring a new agreement that works for you, your children and your former spouse.

Some consequences of falling into delinquency include:

  • Wage garnishments
  • Garnishment of lottery winnings
  • Revocation of commercial driver’s license
  • Repayment and additional fines
  • Contempt — fines or jail time

Protect Your Financial Well-Being With Strong Representation

Whether you are paying or receiving financial support, a knowledgeable lawyer can help you understand your options while crafting a plan for spousal and child support payments.
