Enforcement of Post-Judgment Orders in Illinois
When a party is being uncooperative and refuses to comply with a court order, a contempt of court motion can be filed. In divorce and paternity/parentage cases, contempt motions are typically filed for one of the following reasons:
If one party is in arrears on child support payments, the Illinois Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) has the power to implement enforcement mechanisms (such as wage garnishments). If the DCSS is backed up with a large caseload or the judgment is for spousal maintenance or other financial obligations, you may need a family law attorney to file a contempt of court motion and help recover what is owed.
