Anaheim Family Divorce Lawyer

Enforcement of Settlement Agreements

Settlements are a major element of divorce. If you decide to use mediation or collaborative tactics to resolve your divorce, you and your spouse will eventually reach many agreements on issues like child support, property division, and alimony. Once your divorce is finalized, you will both be expected to fully honor those agreements. If your spouse refuses, contact your Anaheim family lawyer to see how you can have your settlement agreements enforced.

Whether you cannot keep up with prohibitive payments, or your spouse is withholding money out of vindictiveness, failing to comply with settlement agreements is always a bad idea. In most cases it can be considered contempt of court, a serious offense with equally serious consequences. If a person is found guilty of contempt, he or she could face wage garnishment, fines, or even jail time. If you are having problems with your payments, contact your Anaheim family lawyer immediately—a proper modification of court orders can help you re-negotiate your terms while avoiding any contempt charges.
