After a decree is finalized, both parties are responsible for following the terms they agreed on within the decree. This includes following the guidelines of the parenting plan and may involve paying child support or alimony to the other parent. Even though the court requires specific procedures, not everyone will follow through all the time. These disputes do happen, and when they do, it typically leads to post-decree actions against the other.
If one party refuses to follow through with the terms of your decree or court order, or if you need to be defended in a contempt action, our Tulsa divorce attorneys can protect you. As skilled trial attorneys, we are confident in our ability to resolve post-divorce disputes. Our experienced attorneys can help guide you through the court system and fight for your legal rights if the situation occurs.
Common post-divorce disputes include:
• Not complying with child custody/parenting plans
• Nonpayment of maintenance
• Nonpayment of child support
• Enforcing Court Orders
For example, one way you can enforce a divorce decree when someone has violated a court order in direct contempt of court action. Our family law attorneys can help you navigate the paperwork and make sure that it is adequately served to the opposing party and properly lead you through the court process.
If a judgment is issued to you, the judge will give you options for the situation and allocate a specific time in which it should be resolved. Finally, if your former spouse still decides not to comply with the judge’s orders, they can be sentenced to jail time, have their wages garnished, and/or be ordered to pay fines and costs.
If you need help with modification or enforcement issues, do not hesitate to contact our office today. We can then discuss your case, and we can let you know what we can do to help. The Firm on Baltimore is here to help make the citizens of Tulsa through our quality services and the relentless care for our clients.

Grant is one of best lawyers and all around good guys that I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with. We met a couple of years ago at The Outsiders house here in North Tulsa made famous in Francis Ford Coppola's film The Outsiders (1983) based on the novel by Tulsa Author S.E. Hinton. We were in desperate need of an attorney and had very little financially to work with when Grant stepped up and offered his services free of charge! He's since become one of my best friends and has worked tirelessly for the last 2 1/2 years making sure we have everything that goes into building a home into a museum in order. Thank you, Grant Brown! You, and your family are tremendously giving and wonderful folks. I couldn't have done this without you. Stay Gold, my friend!

I have been a Private Investigator in the Tulsa area for 17 years and have worked with a lot of attorneys. I can assure you that The Firm on Baltimore stands out as one of the best. They will handle your case professionally and competently.
Grant and his staff are awesome at what they do! After 9yrs of games these folks stepped up and dug deep to get me my kiddos! They are easy to work with and they truly do make you feel like you are their family! It was a battle but every time the other side wanted to play a game, the folks at The Firm on Baltimore had already had that angle covered.
Grant has been our attorney since 2005. He has always been there to handle all proceedings, court dates, and endless back and forth communications with the opposing party in our custody case. Never once has he backed down or cease to fight for what was right. He is by far the best attorney Tulsa has to offer.
