Violation of Court Orders in Brooklyn
Have You Been Accused of Violating a Court Order?
A divorce agreement is not something that should be taken lightly. Once finalized before a family court or Supreme Court judge, it is legally binding. Both parties must abide strictly to what is now an order of the New York Supreme Court or Family Court. Any deviation from this court order is considered a violation for which there are legal consequences. Depending on how severe the violation is, consequences can be anything from sanctions and fines to losing custody and being charged with parental kidnapping of a child.
At Arnel Law Firm, we help clients who are facing accusations of violating a court order. Serving clients throughout Kings County, Manhattan, and Queens, we help people who have violated an order and need help with a modification. We also help those who are seeking help due to a former spouse continually violating an existing divorce or family court order.
We Understand What You Are Going Through
If you are not following your divorce order, it is highly advised that you seek legal representation from an experienced family law attorney. Understandably, situations do change that may merit a modification of the divorce order. The right thing to do is to formally seek a modification through the court. Otherwise you could be facing adverse legal consequences.
On the flip side, if you find your former spouse has violated your divorce order or an order of protection in a domestic violence situation, seek help immediately – especially if you feel you and your child are in danger. Once you are out of harm's way, we can help you make things right.
Violations of Child Support, Child Custody & Visitation Orders
There are many divorce order violations that can arise, from drop-off sites and parenting time schedules to child support payments. If a former spouse refuses to stick to what they are legally bound, there can be problems.
The most serious is usually when a parent is consistently late or behind on child support. In some cases, the parent could face jail time for back child support, which should have and could have been paid. We can help you address court order violations involving back child support, including enforcement of orders.
Another serious type of violation is if a parent moves away or relocates with the child without giving any notice to the other parent. This can be charged as parental kidnapping, a criminal offense.
Violations of Orders of Protection & Domestic Violence
Orders of protection provide temporary relief for a spouse and any children in a domestic violence issue. When these orders are violated, we may enter into the criminal side of our court systems. Safety always comes first. If you find your spouse or former spouse is violating an order of protection, seek protection from law enforcement officials and then reach out to one of our lawyers for legal counsel on this very serious matter.
