What The Courts Say Goes

It is unacceptable to defy the court’s orders; unless your ex obtains a modification, they must follow all terms of their custody and support orders. This means:

  • Staying current on both spousal support and child support payments
  • Picking up your child from designated activities on time
  • Caring for your child on their parenting days
  • Following any protocols you have in place in the case of an emergency or cancellation

If a person fails to comply with enforcement measures, the court has the option to hold the violator in contempt of the court. This means the court can take measures like sanctioning them, issuing warrants or garnishing wages. The court even has the power to seize assets like homes and cars in certain extreme situations.
