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.

Non-Compliance and Child Support

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.

How Can I Get My Ex-Spouse to Comply with Court Orders?

The courts in NY have many ways of enforcing orders. Depending on how far behind the offending parent or ex-spouse is, a judge may order one or a variety of the actions below:

  • 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

    "They do what they say they are going to do and they will fight for your best interest. Please trust their judgment as it is a difficult process for everyone."
    I have went through a very difficult process. I went through two attorneys before meeting the Wayne Crowe Jr staff. I am so appreciative that I had the opportunity to have their staff work for me. I wish that I would have went to them first. Their staff Wayne, Caroline, Lee, Brian and Scott were all hands on and wonderful people. They not only cleaned up the mess the previous attorneys made. They were diligent, understanding and compassionate. I had the pleasure of having Caroline represent me and she is amazing.

    Unfortunately, divorce is all too common these days. Thank God mine was uncontested and fairly simple. The entire process took 4 months.. I never had to go to court, and only had to visit the office twice. Done efficiently and in a thorough manner.

    "We are satisfied with what he accomplished. We would highly recommend them."
    Wayne F. Crowe and his staff were top notch. He is as professional as they come. They were always available to us with answers to our questions and concerns. It was an honor to have one of his staff Justin represent my husbands on his child support case. We are satisfied with what he accomplished. We would highly recommend them.
