In family law, an enforcement action is the process by which you legally bring an action to document the opposing party’s failure to abide by the order of the court and ask the Court to order that person to comply. You may need to pursue an enforcement action against the opposing party for a variety of reasons, including violations of existing injunctions, child support, visitation, alimony, division of community estate, and more.
Whatever the reason, enforcement actions are frustrating because you are being forced to spend time and money to ask the Court to compel the opposition to do something that he or she is already obligated to do under the existing court order. Our courts have broad powers when it comes to penalizing a party who fails to follow the court’s orders. Specifically, failure to comply with a court order could result in judgments being issued against the defendant, the imposition of hefty fines, attorney’s fees, and sometimes even jail time.
