There are times when a party to a divorce or after a divorce just won't follow the court orders. Typically they are passive-aggressive in how they view the litigation or the results of a trial. Often, they may litigate these motions after having representation on a "pro se" basis, meaning acting as their own attorney. If after multiple attempts to have a party pay for alimony for example, they choose not to pay, or if they have agreed to distribute a retirement account and do not cooperate or do not follow through on the equitable distribution of personal items such as jewelry, it is possible to request that the court sanction the other party for every day that they refuse to follow the court's orders. Sanctions may include daily monetary sanctions, revoking a party's driver's license or other professional licenses, and finally issuing a warrant for the individual's arrest.
