Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
I certainly understand your situation. When a person fails to comply with an order of the court, the other party WOULD need to take them back to enforce the order or ask the Judge to hold that person in contempt. When filing the motion, a person would want to lay out the facts, amount owed and cite the previous order signed by the Judge, stating when the payment were supposed to begin and that they were not made. A person can do this on their own and an attorney is not required. The other party will have to appear and explain to the Judge, why they do not think they need to pay and comply with an order of the court. Please let me know if you have any follow up questions or need any clarification on something which I stated above. I want to make sure your experience with the site was as pleasurable as possible and that you are satisfied with the help I provided.
