Enforcing Court Orders without Filing for Contempt with Halleh Omidi, Esq. | Episode 120

Divorce at Altitude Podcast

The most frequent types of complaints we receive from clients are issues of non-compliance. Filing for contempt of court is a common approach when dealing with non-compliance; however, this leads to rising tensions that make dealing with future issues and co-parenting difficult. 

In today’s episode, Halleh Omidi, a family lawyer from Denver, discusses options to enforce court orders without filing for contempt of court. Halleh is a highly experienced family law attorney at Hogan Omidi, PC  whose deals with divorce and child custody. We learn about options such as a motion to enforce parenting time, asking the court to enter a judgment for child support, the Rule 70 motion to enforce a judgment, and more. 

We also discuss finance-related issues such as enforcing child support and maintenance, including recuperating expenses incurred for the aggrieved party. She also unpacks the complexity of the various processes and provides practical examples. Tune in now to hear how to resolve issues of non-compliance effectively with expert Halleh Omidi!
