Perhaps the other parent isn’t paying child support or refuses to let you see your child. We can help you enforce an existing court order in situations like these.
Orders enforced by the court
In matters of family law, the court is often asked to enforce orders concerning child support and custody. The orders are usually enforced by filing a motion to hold the co-parent in contempt or to enforce. Depending on how severe the violation, a finding of contempt can mean sanctions. In the case of a violation of a custody order, the court can go as far as removing visitation or custody rights altogether. Our experienced legal team will work with you to protect your rights and advise you of all of your legal options.
What happens when a parent wants to move away?
If you are considering relocating with your child but are subject to an existing child custody order, you must get the court’s permission before moving. If you fail to do so, Pennsylvania courts can interpret your actions as an attempt to alienate the other parent.
If you have recently learned that your child’s other parent is planning to move, contacting an experienced lawyer who understands your rights is imperative. By taking quick action, you may be able to stop the move. If you seek to move or oppose another parent’s move, contact us today to discuss your legal options.
