Enforcement Of Orders

In New York, whether you agree to the terms during negotiations or you reach a resolution through litigation, final orders regarding child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support and division of property are issued by the New York Supreme Court.

The court issues a judgment specifying each party's rights and obligations. If a party does not comply with his or her responsibilities as described in the judgment, the court can order enforcement and take certain actions to ensure compliance, including holding a hearing on the issue of contempt of court.

The experienced legal team at Arnel Law Firm in Brooklyn, New York, can petition the court on your behalf to have existing orders enforced. Conversely, if you are having difficulty complying with a court order and face legal action, we can help. Depending upon the facts involved, we may be able to have an order modified so it is more manageable and realistic.
