A divorce arrangement is effective only if all parties uphold the obligations they have agreed to in the areas of child custody, parenting time, visitation, child support and alimony. If one party fails to uphold what he or she agreed to, proceedings can be launched to enforce those obligations.
At Berg, Debele, DeSmidt & Rabuse, P.A., we bring an excellent reputation to these issues, counseling men and women in Minneapolis/St. Paul and beyond on their rights. If you need assistance with an enforcement issue, we will provide you with attentive service from attorneys with a wealth of experience.
Putting The Pieces Together
As a firm dedicated exclusively to family law, we have determined over the years that contempt proceedings are usually unnecessary for achieving enforcement. In most cases, there is a valid reason behind misguided actions such as not paying child support or alimony. For example, when someone loses a job, he or she may fail to pay child support due to this new financial situation, when the correct course of action is to seek modification to bring one's obligations in line with the new financial reality.
In situations where someone is skirting a divorce decree and modification is not warranted, we can pursue contempt proceedings to hold him or her accountable. Often, even the threat of being held in contempt will result in the person taking action to rectify the situation to avoid further legal action.
