A: If its a support or custody/visitation issue, you can file a Petition in family Court. If it's otherwise, you'd need to file an order to show cause in Supreme Court. You should also consider sending a "default notice letter," especially if your agreement requires it. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Divorce Attorney for a full assessment.
