This divorce agreement is a contract. When one person fails to adhere to this contract, problems can arise. For instance, parents cannot generally make unilateral decisions about a child's education, religion, extracurricular activities or health care without input from the other parent. In other situations, an ex-spouse may fail to pay child support or alimony or withhold court-ordered parenting time.

In most cases, Bruce's first step will be to contact your ex-spouse or his or her legal counsel to encourage his or her compliance with the divorce agreement. If this step does not resolve the matter, Bruce will explore other alternatives. Depending on the situation, Bruce may argue to the court that your ex-spouse should be held in contempt of court. In these instances, courts have ample discretion to impose certain penalties, including incarceration for the noncompliant party.
