Department of Justice, Equality and Defence
Question 399: To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality when he plans to bring in legislation to enable persons with maintenance orders from family law courts in their favour to have those maintenance orders enforced; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [21105/11]
Last month, due to difficulties experienced in some cases, I published proposals to clarify the method of enforcement of maintenance orders. These proposals are contained in the Civil Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2011 which is currently before the House.
