Enforcement Proceedings in Daytona Beach
Contact a Florida Family Law Attorney
When an official court order is handed down in a divorce or other family law case, it is the responsibility of every party involved to adhere to it. To refuse to adhere to an established and legally binding agreement can put someone at risk of being held in contempt, and result in significant fees or even jail time. If you are either about to begin enforcement proceedings or believe enforcement proceedings may soon be brought against you, it is highly advisable to hire a lawyer for assistance.
At Buckmaster & Ellzey, our Daytona Beach family law attorneys have been fighting for the people of Florida over 40 years. We understand these matters are complex, and often emotionally fraught. That’s why our goal is to make sure they are not any more difficult than they have to be. Call the enforcement lawyers at Buckmaster & Ellzey now, and receive the legal representation you are entitled to.
What is Involved in Enforcement Proceedings?
The enforcement process begins with an attorney filing a motion for enforcement, outlining how the party in question has failed to comply with established agreements, and requesting that the court compel the noncompliant party to follow its orders. If the court determines the party in question is able to comply with its orders but has chosen not to, then they may find said party in contempt, and issue sanctions forcing them to pay any outstanding support and begin complying with all legal agreements immediately. Attorney’s fees may also be granted under the court’s sanctions. Failure to comply with outstanding orders can result in incarceration.
Enforcement proceedings can be used to uphold:
- Child support payments
- Spousal support payments
- Child custody
- Modification orders
- Pre/postnuptial agreements
- Settlement agreements
- Parenting plan agreements
- Medical insurance agreements
Establishing evidence and fulfilling the other legal requirements in enforcement proceedings can be fairly complicated. This is why you will want to hire a skilled attorney to help make sure you receive everything you are asking for. Conversely, you will also want to hire an attorney if an ex-partner is attempting to begin enforcement proceedings against you, as the penalties for failing to comply in enforcement cases can be severe.

Q: If I’ve Been Arrested, What Rights Do I Have?A: In our country, being arrested does not deprive you of the many rights you have as a citizen. When you were arrested, you should have been informed of your Miranda Rights. You may ask the police officer why you are being arrested and can refuse to answer questions regarding the charges. You have the right to an attorney and the right to a fair and speedy trial. Using a qualified and experienced Daytona Beach criminal defense attorney will work to your advantage in ensuring your rights are protected.

What Are the Differences Between a Misdemeanor and a Felony?Generally, misdemeanors are considered minor offenses. The fines for them will be relatively small and any time spent in jail will be in terms of weeks or months, not years. A felony conviction can result in steep fines, probation, parole and prison sentences for years. They can remain on your permanent record and may adversely affect future educational and employment opportunities. With the assistance of an attorney who is willing to aggressively defend your rights, felony charges can sometimes be reduced to misdemeanors.
What Happens Now That I’ve Been Charged With an Offense?The first step will be what is known as an arraignment. A judge will tell you the charges against you and there are many decisions that will need to be made at this time, such as how you will plea to the charges, what bail will be set at and others. We understand that facing criminal charges can be tough and would like you to take advantage of our experience to help you successfully navigate through the criminal justice system.
What Is the Difference Between Contested and Uncontested Divorce?There are two types of divorce in Daytona Beach: contested and uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce is typically preferred because they can usually be completed with far less hassle and in far less time. However, to go through the uncontested divorce process, the couple must reach an agreement on all significant divorce-related issues. These issues include: • Property division • Debt allocation • Alimony • Child support • Child custody • Visitation When there is disagreement over one or more of these issues, the couple will need to go through the contested divorce process. In such cases, the couple will either need to hire a divorce mediator to help them through the negotiation process or have the family court decide for them.
