You've got that family law order: Now how do you enforce it?

For most divorced parties in Arkansas and elsewhere, a perfect post-dissolution world would be centrally marked by lack of continuing conflict with an ex-partner

That is, communications would be civil -- at least most of the time. Arrangements regarding the children would routinely unfold exactly as agreed upon, with a minimum of fuss or acrimony. And support obligations would be timely and fully paid in every instance, to be applied toward children’s needs, spousal support and other important matters.

In summary, all divorce negotiations would end up amicably agreed to, resulting in smooth sailing for the parties following their signatures affixed to a divorce decree.

Well, alas. Things just don’t work out that way for many former couples. As we note on our Little Rock Enforcement & Contempt page at Robertson Law Firm, PLLC, many divorced couples -- especially parents -- “become involved in enforcement proceedings” related to various payments after the ink dries on those aforementioned signatures.

Enforcement often centers on child support payments, as well as on alimony (spousal maintenance) and child custody matters such as visitation. An enforcement order is also needed in some instances to protect against acts of domestic violence and family abuse.

Candid discussion with a proven family law attorney regarding enforcement matters and proceedings can help ensure that original agreements continue to be carried out following divorce.

Our attorneys at Robertson Law Firm work with clients across a broad range of enforcement considerations, helping them timely file relevant motions and petitions and receive the benefits to which they are entitled.

We welcome online visits from readers interested in our family law practice and the client-empathetic focus we routinely bring to bear on behalf of all the people we legally represent.
