Post-Divorce Enforcement and Contempt Proceedings in Illinois
There are several common reasons for post-decree enforcement actions, including:
- Failure to pay child support;
- Failure to pay spousal support;
- Failure to follow the allocation of parental responsibility plan;
- Failure to provide parenting time/visitation;
- Failure to distribute marital assets.
Failure to live up to the terms and conditions of the divorce decree (without prior approval) can lead to serious consequences. For starters, a motion can be filed to find the ex-spouse in contempt of court. Once filed, the accused must appear at a scheduled hearing to explain why he/she should not be held in contempt. The hearing is similar to a trial, with witnesses called and cross-examined, evidence presented, and a decision rendered. Based on the specifics of the case, the accused may face civil or criminal violations, or both.
