FORMER SPOUSE NOT COMPLYING WITH A COURT ORDER?

FORMER SPOUSE NOT COMPLYING WITH A COURT ORDER?

LEGAL NEWS YOU CAN USE FROM THE DESK OF MICHAEL S. BAILEY, ATTORNEY-AT-LAW.

If you have questions, call me at (513) 631-0022.

Do you have a court order from a divorce or dissolution of marriage? Is your former spouse not complying with the order in terms of payment of child support, parenting time with the children, payment of debts, etc.? Did you know you can return to court and have the issues addressed?

The typical procedure is by filing a motion for contempt against your former spouse, and requesting the court to address the issue. If you are successful, the court will also order your former spouse to pay your attorney fees and expenses in bringing the motion.

We typically try first to resolve the issue with the former spouse prior to seeking court intervention. Doing so helps to alleviate the time and expense typically associated with addressing the issue in court.

This insight into the law is provided by Michael S. Bailey, Esq. of the law firm of Bailey & Gunderson Co., L.P.A., with offices in Norwood and Western Hills. Phone: (513) 631-0022.
