Enforcement / Contempt

Family Law / Enforcement-Contempt

Anyone who has an order from a court requiring another person to do (or refrain from doing) something particular can start a contempt of court action. Also, under certain circumstances, the court can start a contempt proceeding on its own. Some of the most common reasons for starting contempt actions are:

  • failure to pay child support;
  • denial of parental visitation;
  • failure to appear when a subpoena is issued for you to appear at a court hearing;
  • failure to answer questions during a trial; and
  • failure to pay a fine and court costs.

In one contempt case, a woman spent a year in jail for refusing to advise the court about the location of the party’s child.
