Not Everyone Follows the Rules

Contempt of Court and Enforcement of Judgments and Orders


Unfortunately, disputes over alimony, child support, and child custody do not always end with the entry of a final divorce judgment.  We are mindful that litigation should be a last resort. 

But sometimes push comes to shove and you need the legal wherewithal to enforce or defend your hard won settlement agreement or court order and to protect your rights and those of your children. 

As a former prosecutor and public defender, Scott Davis knows how to mobilize the judicial mechanisms available to ensure full compliance with agreements and court orders.  And as a former marine and high-stakes business litigator, Richard Mockler knows the ins and outs of civil procedure and Florida enforcement law.

When a settlement agreement or court order entitles you to custody or support, you have the right to enforce it if your former spouse (or other party) is not in full compliance.   Florida law offers a number of enforcement mechanisms, including the ability to seize assets, foreclosure on real property, or seek an order holding your former spouse in civil or criminal contempt of court which can include jail time. 

We are experienced in all types of enforcement proceedings, including enforcing or defending against (i) overdue child support payments; (ii) spousal support orders; and (iii) compliance with custody, visitation, and parenting plans.

Our team based in Tampa practices divorce and family law throughout Florida, but primarily represents clients in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, and Polk counties.  Wherever you need an expert attorney who is Board Certified in Marital and Family Law, we stand ready to help .  We thank you for taking the time to review our website.
