When family court orders are not followed, recourse is available through various enforcement actions. An enforcement action can be as simple as a well-crafted letter and as “official” as a contempt-of-court motion that is brought before a judge. Consequences of enforcement can jeopardize a party’s financial well-being, his or her right to drive or even his or her freedom.
