FAQ - Divorce

My ex-spouse is not complying with the court order. How do I make them comply?

To enforce a court order, you may file a petition for enforcement, or you may initiate a contempt proceeding with an order to show cause or order to appear, depending on the situation. Your court might have a do-it-yourself packet to enforce the decree that includes instructions and forms. Some courts offer special programs, such as counseling, or require additional steps, such as mediation.
