Kane County Post-Decree Enforcement Lawyers

Child Support Enforcement Attorneys Serving Aurora and Geneva

The issuance of a final divorce decree often feels like the end of a long and arduous process. The same may be said of a legal separation or the determination of paternity. However, for many families, the journey is just beginning as continued legal action may be necessary to ensure compliance with the terms of a court-issued decree.

The experienced legal professionals at the Stogsdill Law Group, P.C., have been handling post-decree enforcement cases for more than 35 years. With our comprehensive knowledge of the law, combined with a dedication to KaneCounty families, our attorneys are able to successfully enforce child support orders, visitation arrangements, and orders for alimony or spousal maintenance.

Decree Enforcement in Kane County, Illinois

When you expect to receive child support or spousal maintenance based on an order entered by court, you the legal right to assume such payments will be made on time, and without interruption. If the payments stop, however, your livelihood and ability to properly provide for your children may be severely compromised. Fortunately, you may have legal options to help you secure the support payments to which you are entitled. Our team of skilled attorneys is fully equipped to assist you in initiating proceedings for indirect contempt of court against any party in violation of your decree. In such cases, the court may exercise its authority to impose wage garnishments, prison sentences, and other consequences to recover delinquent spousal or child support.

Sometimes, a person may become unable to maintain compliance with a support order due to an illness or injury, loss of employment, or other significant change in financial circumstances. When this occurs, a modification to the original order for support may be completely appropriate. We have experience in seeking post-decree modifications and are able to help ensure your order continues to meet your evolving needs.

Elgin Child Custody and Visitation Enforcement Attorneys

In addition to orders for financial support, many parents are forced to struggle with compliance issues with child custody and visitation arrangements. Orders for child custody and visitation are often very specific, and both parties are expected to completely fulfill their obligations. Ignoring designated parenting schedules, refusing visitation to a non-custodial parent, and attempting to move out of state with the child represent just a few examples of compliance concerns related to custody and visitation.

Child custody agreements may also include provisions for personal behavior by each parent. Failure to comply with these provisions, such as smoking, rules regarding new romantic relationships, or drug and alcohol abuse may necessitate court action, as well. Our attorneys can help you through the process enforcement, and assist you in determining if a change in the order may be more appropriate. The best interest of your child should always remain the highest priority, and at our law firm, it always will.
