What type of documentation does an attorney need to help someone enforce an order?

Communication records – whether they're emails, letters, or texts – are not preferred because it's hard to get those from the source, they don’t have a timestamp generally. Receipts are very important, invoices are very important, proof of payment is very important. All of those things would be helpful to seek enforcement. Ultimately when an attorney files a petition for enforcement, they would attach a copy of the order or judgment they're seeking to enforce, a copy of the communication showing that they've asked for reimbursement and are asking for enforcement, and a copy of the receipts and the bills and the invoices.
