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.
Whether you have been affected by your ex-spouses non-compliance or are
facing penalties due to allegations of non-compliance, my firm can help. At
Haddad Law Office, P.C., I have been helping clients and families resolve their post-divorce legal

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.
Whether your post-divorce compliance issue might be, my firm can help.
