What Can I Do if Judge Doesn’t Enforce the Divorce Decree?

Question:diana bishara attorney new jersey

My divorce has been final for more than 120 days. In the divorce decree, there are certain requirements including one that says my ex and I must split medical costs.

My ex has not followed many of the decree’s requirements. My lawyer and I went before the judge and asked if we could file a motion of contempt. The judge said no and has only given my ex lectures.

What can I do if the judge will not enforce the divorce decree?

Answer:

While I am not licensed to practice law in your state, I can give some general guidance on this issue.

If the marriage decree was signed by both parties and the Judge, it should be enforceable. As such, the Court should be able to enforce the terms of the marriage decree which includes her share of all costs and your right to speak to your children. I would suggest you file a motion to enforce the terms of the settlement.

Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than divorce tips for men, so please consult a domestic litigation attorney in your area to obtain specific advice as to the laws in your state and how they impact your potential case.
