Orlando Court Order Violation Lawyer
Seeking Enforcement of Delinquent Legal Decrees
Court-ordered divorce decrees are tantamount to a contract. Like any other contract, violating the conditions set forth in them leads to legal trouble. If your ex-spouse violates any term of the divorce decree, you may file a motion for contempt of court. Likewise, if you violate terms, you can be held in contempt of court. The two most common violations of court orders following a divorce relate to child support and time-sharing agreements. If you are in a situation where the other party of your legal contract is not upholding their responsibility, our court order violation attorney in Orlando can help you seek enforcement.

Child Support Violations
The state of Florida expects parents to pay child support on time, every time. Whether you are a mother or a father paying child support, you are subject to penalties when you fail to do so.
Failure to pay child support can be sanctioned in a number of ways, such as:
- Revocation of your driver's license, your CDL, your professional license, or your hunting and fishing licenses.
- Seizure of certain assets
- Wage garnishment
- A lien placed on your home, car, boat, etc.
- Jail time
Nix Law, P.A. can help parents enforce court orders and also help them avoid contempt by obtaining modifications to the original orders.
Contempt of Court for Custody Violations
When you are denied your time with the children, the other parent can be held in contempt of court. To do so, you can file a motion for contempt.
When this occurs, the other parent may be ordered to "make up" the days withheld and to pay your attorney's fees when you must take the matter to court to enforce. Additionally, they may be ordered to attend a parenting class or perform community service.
Lastly, failure to honor time-sharing agreements may ultimately result in modifications to the time-sharing agreement in your favor.
