If your ex-husband or wife has failed to pay obligations that were part of your divorce decree, talk to a family law attorney with experience enforcing court orders through aggressive collection methods, if necessary. Your ex-wife or ex-husband may have been required to pay obligations such as the following, and has not done so:
Legal remedies for you after the divorce are similar to those that any other creditor has when a debtor fails to pay a debt in Arizona.
Lawyer Stephanie Jackson or lawyer Nicole Lasiter can explain how your spouse’s unpaid obligations can be collected through wage garnishment or seizure of assets, including bank accounts. In some cases, your ex-spouse may be held in contempt of court and may be sent to jail. Assets of a person in contempt of court for failure to pay a court-ordered obligation may be seized and sold at auction to obtain cash to pay with.
