When Is Enforcement Necessary?

In many cases, the terms of the divorce include actions that must be taken relating to the family home, requiring one spouse to:

  • Leave the marital home
  • Assume responsibility for taxes and upkeep of the marital home
  • File documents with the court and the title company to change ownership of the house
  • Refinance the home in one name only to remove the other spouse's association with the mortgage
  • Turn over keys
  • Return items taken from the house to the spouse remaining there
  • Leave certain household goods in the house — or take them

In other cases, a divorce decree may require one spouse to:

  • Deliver a beloved pet to the other spouse
  • File tax returns
  • Cash in stocks or bonds and split the proceeds
  • Pay debts
  • Pay attorneys' fees
  • Pay spousal maintenance

When these actions are included in a divorce decree, they become a legal obligation. If your ex-wife or ex-husband has failed to comply with a court order, you can take legal action.
