Contempt In Divorce And Family Court Cases
In divorce cases, if a Judge issues an order, whether it be for child support or removing one of the parties to the marriage from the marital residence, the order has to be followed. If the order is not followed the other party can bring an action to hold the individual violating the court order in content. Contempt orders can be issued with regard to child custody, a violation of visitation rights, child support issues, spousal maintenance issues, failure to comply with property division and other violations of court orders.
