Seattle Post Decree Lawyers
Aggressively Protecting Your Rights & Interests
divorce decree is finalized, both parties are required to uphold the terms of
the decree. Whether this means paying
child support or adhering to the agreed-upon parenting plan. But even though certain
actions are required by the court, not everyone will follow through. Disputes
do happen, and this typically leads to post-decree actions.
Common post-divorce disputes include:
- Nonpayment of child support
- Not complying with parenting plans (child custody)
- Nonpayment of maintenance

Enforcing Court Orders
One of the options available when enforcing a divorce decree is to file
a contempt of court motion. Our
family law attorneys can help you through the paperwork and ensure that it is properly
served. Once the contempt is filed, the judge will issue a judgment either
agreeing with your motion or denying it.
If the judgement is in your favor, the judge will provide options to remedy
the situation and issue a specific time period in which it should be resolved.
If your former spouse still refuses to comply with the judge’s orders,
then the noncompliant party can be thrown in jail, ordered to pay fines,
or wages may be garnished for payment of support or maintenance.
