Enforcement Provisions Under New Jersey Law
If your ex-spouse is refusing to pay child support or fails to bring your children for your parenting time, you may feel powerless. But, New Jersey law does provide for enforcement and compensatory consequences. Parents who fail to comply with custody or support orders can face serious consequences like:
- Reduced parenting time, including permanent physical custody changes
- Increased fees and monetary compensation for missed child support
- Ineligibility for certain key legal privileges like holding a driver’s license
- Mandatory counseling or community service
- Criminal charges
Your child deserves a stable, productive environment. Failure to comply with these orders can cause turmoil and pain for you and your child. Legal recourse is available.
