Receiverships to Effectuate Family Law Orders and Judgments

By Published On: June 18, 2020Categories: Presentations

Parties to a Family Law case are often at the extremes of litigant behavior. It is not a surprise to find highly aggressive and demanding parties involved in the proceedings. There should also be no surprise that doing so can generate responsive behavior by the other litigant, which is often obstreperous, intransigent, or unusually secretive and uncooperative. Divorcing couples often don’t get along, even when doing so is to their mutual advantage. Among other purposes, the Family Law Court is a court of equity specially designed to effectuate the reasonable and orderly dissolution of a marriage. But these types of situations foster disrespect with the judicial system and tends to perpetuate a cycle of further delay and conflict. The consequence is often an unnecessary and wasteful loss of or injury to marital property value and a denial of effective justice to the either or both of the parties in a Family Law case. When the parties cannot get along, and their actions jeopardize marital property and/or business interests, a court-appointed Receiver may be the only viable remedy that the Family Law Court has to prevent waste, loss, or injury.
