New York City Child Support Attorney
Is your spouse not complying with a court order?
After your divorce process or Family Court Case has been completed, and agreements have been put into place regarding spousal support, child support ,
child custody and
visitation , it is expected that these agreements will be complied with, according to the orders that the court has laid out. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Ex-spouses may not always be in compliance with these orders as a result of financial difficulties, relocation, or other matters. If the divorce was a contested one, one spouse may want to get back at the other and willfully ignore these orders.
Whatever the reason for the non-compliance, Vivien I. Stark, a skilled New York City divorce lawyer, helps former husbands and wives who find themselves in the situation of being frustrated, upset, or angry due to the non-compliance of the other party in the
divorce action. We will petition the court on your behalf to have these existing orders enforced. On the other hand, if your ex-spouse has made false charges against you regarding your failure to follow these agreements, we will defend you against these allegations.
NYC Divorce Lawyer: We Will Protect Your Legal Rights
With 25 years of experience in divorce and family law, we have a deep understanding of the difficulties that may arise from the enforcement of court orders. When a parent who receives spousal support or child support on a regular basis suddenly stops receiving it, financial hardship can ensue, and the quality of the child's life may be compromised. There may also be challenges that an ex-spouse is facing, such as a salary cut, job loss, scheduling problems, or other matters that make it difficult to follow the guidelines laid out by the court.
As compliance with these legal orders is not a matter of choice, failing to follow them can have serious consequences, such as withholding of wages, property lines, or revocation of your driving privileges. If you are having a problem complying with a court order, or if you need help getting a spouse to comply with an order, we can help. Depending upon the facts involved, we may also be able to have an order modified so that it is more workable for all concerned.
