San Diego Enforcement of Judgments
San Diego enforcement of judgments services is sometimes necessary when you are dealing with a parent who does not follow court orders regarding visitation or when he or she is not paying their financial obligations. When it no longer works to simply ask the other party to comply, it is time to contact a lawyer who can help you collect the money to which you are entitled or gain compliance from the other party. At The Law Office of Dawn Dell’Acqua, APC, our enforcement of judgments lawyers have experience representing individuals in many different types of family court cases, including:
- Child and spousal support arrearages (past due support)
- Child custody and visitation orders that are not being followed
- Equalization payments that are not being paid
- Property division matters
Experience You Can Count On to Help You During Stressful Times
In terms of child support enforcement, Ms. Dell’Acqua has experience and insight from her years of serving as a lead attorney for the County of San Diego, District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Child Support Enforcement (now known as The Department of Child Support Services).
Using this experience and training, our office will represent parties requiring services in the area of San Diego enforcement of judgments. These may include:
- Filing a motion asking the Court to hold the non-complying party in contempt and ask the court to order jail time if the obligation is not met
- Seeking an order establishing that the non-paying party is in arrears for child support or spousal support and setting up a payment plan on those arrears
- Levying of bank accounts
- Seeking an order holding the noncomplying parent in contempt or enforcing the visitation order
Every situation is different, and it takes an experienced lawyer to know what strategies are likely to work best in your case. We are dedicated to providing client-focused representation that is compassionate, efficient and effective for all types of family law issues. In some situations, it is possible that the court will also order the other party to pay part or all of your attorney’s fees required to bring the enforcement of judgments.
