When a person fails to meet an obligation from a previous court order, the harmed person (or the parent of the harmed child) may need to file an enforcement action.
Enforcement suits can address a myriad of situations including but not limited to the enforcement of property division, the timely payment of child support, spousal maintenance or alimony, the implementation of possession and access provisions, the adherence to injunctions, the timely payment of healthcare or other child-related expenses.
Depending upon the enforceability of the previous order, an order may need to be clarified by the court. A party may petition the court to hold a person who fails to comply with a court order in contempt for that violation. Family lawyers at Briner Family Law Group are adept at properly identifying the enforceability of the provisions of court orders and advising our clients of the best approach to ensure that the intended results from the previous court order are the results that are actually obtained.

Hats off to your staff for being so patient and kind each and every time I dealt with them. I send you my biggest and sincerest “THANK YOU”!W.P.
“A divorce is an overwhelming stress and one where an attorney can make the process easier or more cumbersome. Thank you to Marie for focusing on my needs, both economically and emotionally. I learned so much about myself during this time and Marie was there to help guide me. Marie’s ability to see the big picture, while focusing on the details, has given me a wonderful lifestyle post divorce. Thank you Marie.”Rosalie
“Thank you, thank you, thank you. Words cannot express my deepest thanks and gratitude. A few months ago all I could feel was hopelessness, but thanks to you I now feel free of financial burden, abuse and control…. I was so amazed with your remarkable support, warmth, courage and defense. You are totally brilliant…. I will never forget all your hard work and dedication.”– R.G.
“Not only did you guide me through the process with your legal skill, knowledge and experience, you remembered the names of our four kids the entire way through the case! Marie, you were not just a lawyer – you cared about my kids, my legal position, and making sure that my kids and I were taken care of as much as you could. Thanks so much!”L.N.
“Thank you for empowering my Mom during such a difficult transition. You took her by the hand, while she was learning to walk on her own. A year later, she is a much stronger woman now than she was during her marriage. Your advice and guidance has enabled her to stand on her own. Thank you.”E.G., adult daughter of client
Thank you for all of your help during my family’s difficult and stressful time. I truly appreciate the care and understanding you gave me when I had nowhere else to turn. Both Josh and I have been able to heal and grow and could not have done so without you. You are a remarkable lawyer and a wonderful person. Thank you for everything you have done.S.C.
“You never know what life is going to throw at you. When things seem to be falling apart, the greatest comfort is having someone you trust carry you through the tough times. Your expertise in the law, and in psychology and human behavior, gave me a sense of peace that things would be resolved in the best way – for me, and for my children. Now that we’re on the other side of our transition, I feel truly privileged to have had someone like you on my side. You are tough, compassionate, smart, and reasonable… and our outcome really represents the best situation for everyone involved. Thank you!S.M.
