Matters for Post Decree Enforcement

After a divorce is finalized, it is not uncommon for one of the involved parties to fail to meet one or more terms of the decree. If you are party to a decree in which the court ordered terms are not being met, Attorney Robert Schmit can help petition the court for further action to enforce compliance.

Because a person’s financial, employment, lifestyle and other personal circumstances can change, noncompliance with court decrees can change as well. Most post decree infractions against court orders are related to child support and visitation issues. The court will act on such noncompliance matters as:

  • Delinquent child support payment
  • Refusing to pay child support
  • Failure to comply with child visitation orders
  • Removal and relocation of a child without court permission
  • Failure to pay alimony

Attorney Robert Schmit has over thirty years of experience in divorce, child custody, visitation rights, and all facets of family law. We are experienced in petitioning the court to enforce the stipulations of your divorce decree. Our goal is to reduce the stress and negative impact that noncompliance with the orders of your decree can have on you and any involved children.
