When Parents Don’t Respect Established Orders
Removing Children From Parental Disputes
While going through a divorce can be extremely stressful for each spouse, it is often even more difficult for children. During this complicated time, they need love and support from both of their parents and they should never be used as pawns to get even with or punish the other spouse. If your divorce decree or settlement agreement is being violated, you need to speak with a knowledgeable attorney about your options for making things right.
Are you being kept away from your children? Is your ex-spouse acting contrary to a court order? For an initial consultation with an experienced Marietta child support lawyer, contact Bill Gentry today.
What Is Contempt?
The most common contempt situation involves parents failing to pay child support, often due to their belief that they have been paying too much or because of job loss. It is not up to parents to take the law into their own hands, and doing so places them in contempt. Anytime the agreement of the parties is not being followed, a contempt motion is the primary enforcement mechanism.
Providing Remedies To The Underlying Issues
While it is important to pursue or defend against the finding of contempt, it is just as important to correct the underlying issues that caused or contributed to the contempt motion. For instance, if child support payment amounts need to be adjusted, we can help you press for modifications that will help avoid child support enforcement issues in the future.
