Information On Modifications And Enforcement
Once a family court order has been established, it is to be followed by all parties who are affected by or named in the order. Orders can be enforced according to the terms that are set as they pertain to child support, child custody or other issues. If an order is not being followed or needs to be changed, it is important to consult with an attorney to understand your options.
