If you are due child support or spousal support payments and have not been receiving them, you need to act quickly in order to enforce the terms of your agreement. A qualified California family law attorney will be able to present the facts of the case to a family court judge. The judge can issue a contempt of court against the other party, and that person could face possible jail time if the situation is not rectified. Peter Flanagan is experienced within California courts and will help you navigate this process quickly and easily.
While child support and spousal support payments being missed are the most common reason to seek enforcement, there are others as well.
- Failure to maintain health insurance as ordered by court
- Refusal to disclose assets
- Failure to pay off marital debts as ordered by court
