Enforcing Spousal Support

Spousal Support Enforcement

Orders related to spousal support may require legal assistance to get compliance. If one party in a divorce fails to adhere to the terms of a court order, the other party can take legal action to seek enforcement of the order. This legal action is initiated by filing an affidavit that has enough facts to support a contempt charge. If the court finds the individual in contempt, he or she can be ordered to pay fines and face other legal repercussions. In most cases, each month of missed payments is addressed as its own contempt charge, and if the conduct continues, the individual who is in contempt could face jail time.


If you are seeking to enforce a spousal support order, or need representation against accusations of failing to pay a court-ordered maintenance payment, contact a Murrieta divorce attorney who can assist you in resolving the issue. In most cases, when pressure is brought to bear legally, the individual who is failing to provide the support payment will often quickly resolve the overdue payments.
