Hi thank you for your message, you can look to enforce the order. It is good practice to send a warning letter to your ex-husband before you report a breach so that you provide him or her with an opportunity to meet his or her responsibilities. Doing so strengthens your position as a reasonable and fair person. If your ex-spouse does not respond, you can report the breach to the court using a D11 form. You might consider obtaining help from a solicitor in completing this form. On it, you state that you think the order may have been breached, and that you would like it to be enforced.
At the same time you send the form to the court, you should send a copy to the other party so he is aware that he is likely to face court action. In most cases, if there has been a breach, the consent order will be enforced by the court.
The person who has made the breach will be required to pay the money owed within a certain period of time.
If he fails to do so, the court order will be broken, which is punishable by a fine or even prison. I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
