You can start the process of enforcing a court order by filling a Motion for Contempt or a Motion for Order to Show Cause to request that a judge hold the other party in contempt for violating the established court order. The consequences for not complying with a court order include anything from a verbal reprimand to jail time. If you need help enforcing a court order, it is always in your best interest to consult with a lawyer beforehand.
