Enforcement of Orders or Judgments
Our Firm Can Help Protect Your Legal Rights
When the court puts a family law order into effect, both parties are bound
by law to follow every aspect of this order to a T. If at any point one
party violates some aspect of the order, you have the right to take action
by getting the court involved. Enforcing an order or judgment can be difficult
without legal assistance, so it is imperative that you work with a
family law attorney you can trust.

How are court orders enforced in California?
The methods taken to enforce an order or judgment depend on the specific
matter at hand. There are a number of different orders that can be brought
to the attention of the court when enforcement is necessary, including:
If the court order was willfully broken by one party, they may be held
in contempt of court for their actions. Contempt penalties are harsh and
can be used to enforce the family law order. A person guilty of contempt
of court could be charged with community service, imprisonment, or fines.
Judges take such violations seriously, refusing to put up with individuals
who don’t follow through as directed.
