Contempt and Enforcement of Court Orders

Disagreements can, and often do, continue even after a divorce decree or custody or support order has been entered by the court. These disagreements usually involve issues of compliance with the order. Sometimes, however, there are genuine disagreements over the terms and provisions of the order. The most common method of enforcing an order is the “contempt” proceeding. Contempt proceedings are serious because the court has broad authority to enforce orders.

We represent clients who are in need of court intervention to force compliance. We also represent clients who have been accused of being in contempt of a court order.
