Enforcement Remedies

Recently I was faced with a situation where my client was granted a substantial counsel fee award from the court. However, the husband refused to pay the amount ordered. According to statute regarding enforcement remedies for this situation, there are several options available to recover the amount due to my client. I determined that there were two beneficial methods my client could use. The first was sequestration, which could be used because there has been a pattern of nonpayment by the husband in the past. The second was a personal property execution, where his property would be seized and sold in order to recover the full amount owed to my client. I am currently in the process of choosing between one of these two enforcement methods that will be the most beneficial to my client. If nonpayment continues, contempt proceedings will follow.
