Post Judgment Enforcements
The Judgment of Divorce not only dissolves a legal marriage, but also informs the couples of their rights and responsibilities pursuant to the Order. Unfortunately, a legal divorce is not always the end of the story.
Sometimes ex-couples disagree over issues related to their original Judgment of Divorce. These issues might include child support, child custody, or spousal support. This is where post judgment comes into the picture.
Post-judgment action can be taken when one spouse hasn’t fulfilled what they were ordered to do by court. For example, if a spouse has been ordered to pay child support, but has failed to do so, the other spouse can seek enforcement from the court. This proceeding can be carried out in Family Court or Supreme Court.
In many post judgment cases, contempt allegations are involved. If found guilty, a contempt proceeding could lead to incarceration. This is why it is extremely vital to hire an experienced and aggressive attorney to handle the complicated case on your behalf.
