Enforcing Child Custody Agreements in Mission Viejo
How to Enforce Your Child Custody Rights
If you have been through
divorce and you have been assigned
child custody rights then these orders have the force of law. There are many cases where
an ex-spouse may not adhere to these orders and you may find that you
are having difficulty obtaining your rights. It is important for you to
know your options if your ex-spouse is not following these court orders.
- Contact your local police department and ask them to enforce the order,
as your order has the force of law.
- In the case that an ex-spouse is not returning your child, then you may
contact the district attorney in Orange County and look for the child
abduction and recovery unit.
- File an action for contempt with the court, which is essentially a notification
of the lack of adherence on your ex-spouse's part, and a request to
have these rights enforced.
This however can be extremely complicated and can have some very serious
consequences so it is vitally important that you speak with an Mission
Viejo custody attorney from The Hunter Law Group before filing an action
for contempt with the California State Court. As a form of reference and
evidence, you should always keep detailed records of any
visitation or child custody violations on the part of your ex-spouse and have these
records with you whenever you go to court for a related matter.
