If your ex-spouse is failing to uphold what is required of them in family law agreements, you can appeal to the court for an enforcement of those orders. In some circumstances, a judge can hold your former spouse in contempt and face penalties that include jail if they continue to avoid their responsibilities. A focused Mission Viejo family law attorney can guide you through the enforcement process and help you find the justice and fair treatment you deserve. As an experienced attorney and mediator for family law matters, the Law Offices of Jennifer Owens can provide you with legal representation that helps alleviate the stressful situation you are dealing with.

If you are seeking to hold the other parent of your children or ex-spouse in contempt for their failure to adhere to judgments, it can be necessary to demonstrate a few things in California. A valid court order must be filed, the other party has to be aware of the court order, and the other party has to have willfully violated the court’s orders. Many people can reach an agreement or fulfill their obligations before they can face contempt.
At the Law Offices of Jennifer Owens, our lead attorney is focused on finding ways to resolve matters in a timely and effective manner. She seeks to relieve anxiety and hardships our clients face by finding a way to settle matters outside of the court.
