Enforcing a Child Custody Order

Mother and daughterIf the other parent refuses to let you have scheduled visitation time with your son or daughter or fails to spend time with your child, as ordered by the court, you have the right to enforce the order. We will file a motion for contempt in an effort to request relief for your individual situation.

Enforcing a Child Support Order

If the other parent refuses to provide financial support according to a court order, you may have the option to enforce it and seek payment and possibly be awarded attorney’s fees and costs. Idaho Child Support Receipting Services monitors child support payments. Should the other parent refuse to provide the required funds for a child, in accordance with a court order, there may be several legal remedies to compel him or her to pay their court ordered support.

Enforcement of a child support order may involve:

  • Wage garnishment
  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Interception of federal and state tax refunds
  • Contempt of court action
  • Other financial and administrative penalties

Depending on the situation, some remedies for enforcing child support may be included in the original order. However, should the parent continue to refuse to make payments, you may have the option to pursue other enforcement methods. If financial hardship, such as the loss of a job or a medical emergency, arises and prevents the paying parent from obeying the court order, Idaho Child Support Services may evaluate your case, but our attorneys will work with you directly in an effort to achieve resolution.
