Support Enforcement

Gresham Support Enforcement Lawyers

When the divorce proceeding has reached its conclusion, the two parties are presented with the agreed-upon divorce judgment. This judgment contains language to clarify all of the factors that were discussed — such as custody, support, and alimony — during the proceedings. When one party breaks the terms of the judgment, it can result in severe consequences.

At Gresham Family & Bankruptcy Law, our lawyers represent clients through the full range of family law matters. Whether your situation involves a post-divorce modification or an enforcement of judgment, it is wise to seek the counsel of a skilled Oregon attorney as soon as possible.

Multnomah County Custody Enforcement Attorneys

If one of the parties does not follow the provisions set out in the General Judgment, it may be that one individual who will attempt to take matters into his or her own hands. If one parent is not paying his or her child support obligations, the other parent will simply deny visitation. This is certainly not a recommended course of action and can cause long-term damage to your children and also be held in violation of the judgment themselves. The court has specific penalties in place to sanction or punish anyone who does not honor the divorce judgment. The court can determine it is best to modify the custody or parenting time arrangement of imposed financial penalties or fines. Contact our Gresham support enforcement attorneys to learn more.

The court has the power to hold a party in contempt for disobeying a judgment. The court can impose jail time, the payment of attorneys fees and compensation for all missed payments through contempt proceedings. Do not attempt to settle the matter on your own. Schedule a consultation at our firm to learn more about your legal options.
