Court Order Enforcement in Grand Rapids
Call (616) 202-3988 for Dedicated Legal Support
Divorce and legal separation settlements are legally binding, which means that if your ex-spouse in any way violates the written agreement, they can be held responsible. At The Wealthy Street Law Firm, our top priority is to protect our clients' rights and provide you with the highest quality legal service possible.
Types of Enforcement Methods for Family Law Cases
After a divorce or family law case goes through litigation, both parties are expected to closely follow the written decree. Depending on the type of case, this may include anything from child support and spousal support payments to visitation rights.
While it would be wonderful if every person complied with the court order they were given, this is often not the case. From late payments or complete lack of payments to breaking child custody laws, you have the right to enforce your ex-spouse to follow the court order with the help of a Grand Rapids family law attorney.
There are a number of different enforcement methods which we may be able to use, such as:
- Taking funds from their tax refund
- Wage garnishment
- Deducting from lottery or gambling winnings
- Deducting from unemployment benefits
- Placing a lien
- Taking funds from their bank account
- Federal prosecution
- Suspending professional licenses
- Suspending driver's license
- Holding them in contempt of court
