Barrington IL Divorce Decree Enforcement Lawyer

Attorney for Divorce Contempt of Court in North Barrington, Cary and Deer Park

A divorce decree is a legally binding document. Failure to comply with any part of the decree without first seeking a modification could result in contempt charges. These charges come with serious consequences, including jail time and wage garnishment.

If the other party is not complying with your divorce decree or you are facing charges of contempt in Illinois, contact the Barrington law firm of Lucas Law. With more than 25 years of experience in family law, our Barrington contempt of court lawyers strive to help you resolve your issue as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

Representing Clients on Both Sides of Enforcement Actions

Depending on the facts in your case, your divorce decree may contain orders about child support, spousal maintenance, child custody, visitation and property division. Failure to comply with any of these orders puts the violator in contempt of court. Common violations include:

  • Failure to pay court-ordered child support or spousal maintenance
  • Failure to allow for visitation or custody of children
  • Wrongfully taking a child out of state
  • Failure to comply with property division orders

If you are unable to comply with any part of your divorce decree, we urge you to contact us as soon as possible, so we can help you avoid a situation where you may be in contempt of court. If you have experienced a significant change such as job loss or disability, we can assist you in filing a modification. If contempt charges have already been brought against you, we will help you develop a strong defense.

If your child's other parent is not paying child support, refusing visitation or otherwise violating your divorce decree, we will help you take action to enforce these orders. We will ask that attorneys' fees are awarded, and help ensure that the other party is held accountable for his or her actions and complies with the orders.
