Too often one or both parties of a divorce decide not to follow the agreement they previously entered into that is found within their Decree of Divorce. If this happens, the other party is entitled to attend an “order to show cause” hearing with the court in an attempt to obtain compliance from the disobedient party.
The court will always expect the parties to follow the terms and conditions found within their Divorce Decree. If a party refuses to follow the terms of the decree, the court can enforce the decree and require the party to follow it. The court has the power to hold a disobedient party in contempt of court which can result in serious sanctions against that party. Sanctions can include fees, incarceration, loss of certain privileges like having a driver’s license, etc. Judge’s do not take lightly to parties who voluntarily disobey the terms of a divorce decree.
