Alabama Divorce Attorneys
After a divorce is finalized and a proper divorce agreement is in place — either due to cooperation by the parties or from a court order — both parties need to live up to the obligations included in that agreement. This includes the proper payment of child support, as well as an adherence to property division guidelines, child custody and visitation rights.
Unfortunately, when your ex-spouse does not live up to your agreement, it can be frustrating, and it is important to protect your rights and the rights of your children. At the Birmingham law firm of Gina H. McDonald & Associates, our firm can help you enforce your family law court decree when your former spouse or partner is in contempt of court.
Birmingham Contempt and Enforcement Lawyers
When circumstances are appropriate, we can help you file a contempt petition to compel cooperation with mandatory court orders, including those that impact your children. While the filing of a contempt petition is usually recommended for situations where the other party's behavior has been egregious, it is always important when the welfare of your children have been put at risk.
We will do what it takes to uphold your rights and to get the resolution that you deserve. Our firm has the skill and experience to hold those accountable who do not follow the guidelines of a divorce agreement or settlement.
