When your former spouse or the other parent of your child/children fails to follow to a Court, how can you ensure your rights will be protected to the full extent of the law?
When you don’t receive the financial support you need from child support or alimony order because your former spouse or the other parent of your child refuses to pay, how can you enforce your rights and obtain these payments?
At the Peabody, Massachusetts, Law Office of Merril S. Chin, we have assisted thousands of clients in enforcing their rights when former spouses and others violated Court orders. Issues and challenges we frequently address include:
• A former spouse’s failure to sell a home pursuant to a Court order to do so, and/or to divide the proceeds of such a sale;
• A former spouse’s failure to refinance a home pursuant to a Court order to do so;
• A parent’s failure to regularly and timely make child support payments or to maintain health or life insurance as ordered by the Court; and
• A former spouse’s failure to regularly and timely make spousal support/alimony payments
The Law Office of Merril S. Chin can institute the legal process needed to enforce your rights. After filing a complaint for contempt, we can:
• Represent you at all hearings and advocate for your right to receive what the Court has already awarded to you.
• Aggressively pursue attorneys’ fees. For contempts involving the nonpayment of child support, the law presumes your attorneys and court fees should be paid by the party violating the Court order. You shouldn’t have to pay for what the Court has already said is yours.
In addition to representing plaintiffs (those bringing the contempt action), we represent defendants accused of contempt. To learn more about the Law Office of Merril S. Chin and representation if you have been accused of contempt of court/violating a court order, contact a Peabody contempt order attorney at our firm.
