What Happens When You Fail to Comply With a Court Order?

When an ex-spouse fails to obey the terms of a decree such as property division or spousal support, the wronged spouse must act on their own to enforce the order. Upon the judge’s approval, this commands the non-compliant spouse to appear before the judge. Unless the non-compliant party can develop a proper defense and provide the judge with a viable reason why he or she disobeyed the decree, the court can find him or her in contempt.

The judge must find that the non-compliant parent willfully and intentionally disobeyed or ignored the court orders. In regards to child support, New York’s Support Collection Unit (SCU) doesn’t need court approval to take enforcement measures against non-compliant parents.

Consequences for failing to fulfill court orders include:

  • Wage/income garnishment
  • Interception of tax refunds
  • Freeze bank accounts
  • Report non-paying parent to credit bureaus
  • Lien on business or home
  • Loss of driver’s license and passport
  • Loss of occupational or professional license
  • Jail
  • Fines
