Assisting Clients with Contempt Orders

Willful disobedience to any type of Court Order can lead to a request for, and subsequent finding of, Contempt of Court. In family law, this typically involves purposeful non-payment of support, but could also involve non-compliance with visitation (whether as custodial or non-custodial parent), property division or restraining or other injunctive orders.

Being held in Contempt is quasi-criminal and should not be taken lightly. A Judicial finding of Contempt is punishable and usually also results in payment of the other party's attorney fees and costs. Punishment includes an array of aspects, including, but not limited to, fines and even jail, or both.

Chavis Law Firm works on both sides of the coin. We aggressively seek to enforce Court Orders by filing contempt actions, and we vigorously defend against the same when necessary. Contact us to speak to a knowledgeable attorney and to ensure that your rights are protected.
