Helping You Enforce Family Law Judgments
A divorce decree or other family law judgment creates binding legal obligations between the parties. If someone is failing to uphold his or her obligations to you, I can help you seek enforcement.
Contact me to get skilled assistance from a lawyer with more than 30 years of experience helping clients obtain and enforce family law judgments. I can meet with you at my Northern Virginia office in Fairfax or my Lynchburg area office in Forest.
Multiple Options for Getting Results
Financial obligations included in a divorce judgment, such as spousal maintenance or income from a jointly owned business, may be subject to enforcement orders. Child custody and visitation may also be enforced through the courts. Depending on what you are seeking to enforce and the circumstances of your case, your options may include:
- Show cause (contempt of court) actions
- Wage withholding orders
- Garnishment of bank accounts
- Attachment of assets
In some cases, these sanctions will be imposed with increasing severity until the other party lives up to his or her obligations.

Unique Procedures for Child Support Enforcement
Like many states, Virginia has an administrative agency that helps enforce child support obligations. If you are having trouble working within the child support enforcement system, I may be able to help.
Other aspects of Virginia family law can be enforced through private actions in court. The counsel of an attorney is important in helping fully assert your rights to family law enforcement.
