Enforcement Of Alimony & Child Support

Although most child support and alimony orders are taken right out of the payor’s paycheck via the Income Withholding Order, our Asheville Family law attorneys understand there can still be problems with nonpayment. The court takes nonpayment of child support very seriously and may have powers to make the nonpaying party make their payments, such as suspending the nonpaying party’s driver’s license. Contact our family law attorneys today to see how we can help you!

Enforcement Of A Parenting Plan

In the case of a parent refusing the other parent their time with the child, the court can enforce the orders by providing the parent who missed the timesharing to have made up time with the child. In addition, the court can also order the non-complying party to pay attorney’s fees, modify the parenting plan, or attend a parenting class.

Enforcement Of A Marital Settlement Agreement

A marital settlement agreement is a court order, meaning that if either party does not follow the agreement, they are in violation of a court order. Depending on what part of the agreement either party is in violation of, the recourse varies. For example, if one party is in violation of the equitable distribution portion of the agreement, the only recourse is to file a motion to enforce the agreement, which can lead to legal fees.
