Divorce Compliance Issues

The relief that comes with finally completing a divorce procedure can sometimes be followed by another complication: non-compliance by your ex-spouse with the divorce court orders. This non-compliance can happen any number of ways and forces the complying spouse to again take legal action. In many cases, once the court is aware of the non-compliance, it can take action to enforce those orders and rectify the situation.

Enforcing Your Syracuse Divorce Orders

Unfortunately, it is not unheard of for ex-spouses to express their dissatisfaction with the court's divorce rulings by rebelling against their legal responsibilities. When this happens, the other spouse—and sometimes even children—are put at a significant disadvantage.

Common instances of non-compliance with divorce orders include:

  • Refusal to participate in the sale of a marital residence
  • Refusal to honor spousal maintenance (alimony) payments
  • Refusal to honor child support payments
  • Consistent refusal to adhere to custody or visitation parenting plan

Ex-spouses can also provide a lot of excuses to delay certain actions or payments. These can often quickly compound and result in non-compliance. Different actions can be taken depending on the specific compliance issue, but no matter what the circumstances, I can help you file the correct court order and ensure that a judge becomes aware of your ex-spouse’s failure to meet their post-divorce responsibilities.

Allegations of Non-Compliance

In some cases, non-compliance happens for a legitimate reason. You may be served a court order to appear before a judge for a non-compliance issue because you have been unsure on how alert your ex-spouse and the judge to a dramatic change in your circumstances. When this happens, it is recommended that you have legal representation by your side. I can help you navigate this process, make your circumstances apparent to the judge, and even help pursue a modification that establishes new divorce terms suitable to everyone's needs.
