Enforce Wisconsin Alimony Orders
Hold an ex-spouse in contempt of court if alimony goes unpaid
If one either you or your ex-spouse is found to be violating the marital settlement agreement, the person violating the order can be held in contempt of court. This type of action can result in fines and/or jail time.
Depending on the circumstances the offending party may also be required to reimburse attorney fees and other damages. In instances where one party is found in contempt of court, fines are typically levied instead of jail time as the violations don't warrant this type of punishment.
The first step in rectifying a situation where one party is violating the agreed alimony or family support order is filing a contempt of court action. Beginning this is easy if you already have an attorney. If you don't have an attorney, always remember that any quality family attorney can help get a resolution to problems like these fairly quickly.
