In divorce proceedings, spousal support and child support are often necessities that one party require in order to make ends meet. If these court orders for support are not adhered to, you and your family may be going without the necessities of life, such as food, clothing or even a home. If you're in this situation you do have options. Taking your former spouse back to court to enforce the orders is one way to ensure that the support is fulfilled. A Covina divorce lawyer from my firm can help you through this process, and make sure you take all the necessary steps to have your court orders enforced.
When you seek enforcement from the court, they will likely issue a wage garnishment against your former spouse, which means that the money that is rightfully yours will be automatically diverted from his or her pay and given directly to you. This is compulsory, and may be ideal for avoiding communication with your ex-spouse if you are not on good terms. The bottom line is that the judge who handled your divorce awarded support for a reason, because you needed it. It is unacceptable to not be receiving money that is rightfully and legally yours and you shouldn't have to ask for it. Let an attorney from my firm help you get what is yours.
