Enforcing Divorce Orders in Providence
Ex-spouse ignoring your order? Call a Providence divorce lawyer!
After you and your spouse reach a final
divorce agreement and sign the official divorce decree, both parties are legally bound to
follow all conditions set in said decree. If you or your ex-spouse ever
ignore or fail to follow the specific conditions, you or they may be found
in contempt of court. In the event you need a divorce order
modification, you can petition for one with the court and have your current order legally
modified. A verbal or written modification between ex-spouses will not
hold up in court—a legal modification must be made.
Unfortunately, many individuals experience problems with their ex-spouses
following their divorce orders due to feelings of resentment or betrayal.
If you are experiencing problems with your ex-spouse minding the rules
set forth by your divorce order, you have the legal right to obtain a
Providence divorce lawyer for assistance. I, Attorney Steven G. Wright,
have extensive experience enforcing divorce orders and can help you successfully
ensure your divorce order is followed by you and your ex-spouse.

The Process of Enforcing Orders in Rhode Island
When you seek legal experience, I can help you file a contempt motion with
the court. It is my job to ensure your ex-spouse has been served the motion
and receives notice of the hearing time and date. In the contempt of court
motion, I will indicate the specific part of your divorce order that is
being violated and how. It is vital you have as much proof as possible
of said violation, or the court may not consider your contempt valid.
Once you have your hearing and the court hears both sides of you and your
ex-spouse's arguments, it is the judge's job to determine if your
claim is sufficient enough to prove your ex-spouse is in contempt of court.
If the judge determines such, they will compile a written order describing
the contempt order and how it must be resolved. Your ex-spouse is then
given a specific amount of time to fix said problem.
