We Are Here to Support You & Your Family
The decision to divorce is never easy. Divorce proceedings and their aftermath are often emotionally charged.

If you are in this situation, Burns Law Office can help you enforce your court order.
For 25 years, we have provided clients with the aggressive advocacy they need. At Burns Law Office, you and your family come first. Let our Burnsville court order enforcement attorney fight for you. We handle cases across the Minneapolis metro area and throughout Minnesota.
What to Do When a Court Order Is Violated
When the court orders someone to pay child or spousal support, that order must be followed. It is not negotiable. If you are not receiving the child support or alimony you are entitled to, you have the option to file a motion for contempt. This notifies the court that their order has not been followed. When there is a violation, the court must be informed.
We can help enforce court orders regarding:
- Child support
- Child custody
- Visitation orders / parenting time
- Spousal support or alimony
- Orders for Protection
- Ex parte orders
Enforcing Orders for Protection
When an Order for Protection (OFP) is violated, it is a serious issue. If this has happened to you, our experienced Burnsville court order enforcement lawyer can help you file a motion for contempt with the court. Once the court is notified that this protective order has been violated, they can contact the police, who can then investigate the situation. If they find the individual in violation of the OFP, they can make an arrest.
At Burns Law Office, our goal is to provide clients with the compassionate yet aggressive advocacy they need. We are fierce litigators who are not afraid to stand up for your rights. If your ex-partner is denying you your court-ordered visitation, or if your ex parte order has been violated, we are here for you. Additionally, we know that these matters are highly emotional, and false accusations do happen. If you have been falsely accused of violating a court order, we can fight to protect your rights.
