ENFORCEMENT OF PRIOR ORDERS
If an order has been signed by a judge and filed with the court having established jurisdiction, the order(s) stand until they are modified by the court. When one party does not follow the terms of the orders in place, the opposing party may file a Motion for Enforcement with the court. The two most common types of enforcement cases in family law are enforcement of prior orders pertaining to custody and visitation, and orders pertaining to child support.
