If you are getting a divorce, and you have children, you might have a joint parenting plan or agreement with the other parent. If the other parent doesn't follow the plan, you can ask the court to help you make them follow it. This is called "enforcing" it.
Enforcing as a court order
If you were divorced, and your joint parenting agreement was made a part of the divorce order, you can enforce the agreement as a court order. To do so, you will need to file a Rule to Show Cause. The process is the same as enforcing a custody order. Learn more about Enforcing a custody order.
Enforcing as a contract
If your joint parenting agreement was not made a part of a divorce order, you can still enforce it as a contract. To do so, you will need to start a new lawsuit by filing a Complaint and Summons. Learn more about Starting a lawsuit.
