Harrisburg Family Law Enforcement Lawyers
Protecting Your Parental Rights
When a party subject to a family law order fails to comply with the terms of that order, the other party can go to court in an effort to find the other party in contempt. The contempt order empowers other agencies such as the sheriff or police to enforce the order.
A finding of contempt is very serious. The party subject to the contempt order can be put in jail, have his or her wages garnished to pay for child support or lose driving privileges.
At Scaringi Law, we represent both sides in contempt and enforcement matters. We are knowledgeable concerning the law and court procedures concerning these actions, and we work diligently to protect our clients' rights.

Child Support Enforcement
During divorce, we can represent you in a child support enforcement hearing, seeking to achieve your goals. Our family law enforcement attorneys can advise and represent you, whether you are owed child support or are required to pay it.
Failure to pay child support can result in the suspension or revocation of your driver's license, garnishment of your wages or bank account, loss of your professional license, and up to six months in jail. Before things reach this point, talk with us. We may be able to request a child support modification, or work out a payment plan that provides relief.
Enforcing Custody and Visitation Rights
Courts take a dim view of parents who violate a custody or visitation order. A parent found in contempt faces the loss of custody of the child(ren) or visitation rights, fines and the requirement to pay the opposing party's attorney's fees. Our firm can provide results-oriented representation to protect your rights.
We represent clients whose children have been moved to Pennsylvania in violation of an out-of-state custody order. For responsive help in an interstate child custody matter, call (717) 775-7195.
