Steps You Must Take to Enforce Your Agreement
Before you take the matter to court, consider checking in with your former
spouse to ensure he or she fully comprehends the terms of your divorce.
In some cases, some individuals lack understanding regarding their legal
obligations. If the matter involves your children, it is especially beneficial
to open up the lines of communication before jumping to conclusions.
During this time, make sure you make a record of your former spouse’s
breaches of the order and of all correspondence, including texts and emails.
If communications fail to resolve the matter, these records will be crucial
in your motion to enforce the order. Depending on the provisions you are
seeking to enforce, the court will take the appropriate legal action to
ensure it is obeyed.
For example, if your ex-spouse fails to pay spousal support, he or she
may be punished by contempt. To ensure you receive the spousal support
you need, your former spouse’s wages may be garnished. If your former
spouse owes a substantial amount of support, he or she may even be charged
interest and the court may also charge your ex with any legal fees you
incurred to enforce the order.
