Contempt

Helping You Right Your Ex’s Wrong

A Contempt of court occurs when someone willfully violates a clear judgment or order of the court, thereby undermining its authority, without just cause. Being accused of being in contempt of a court order is a very serious thing as it can carry a penalty that includes paying the other party’s attorney fees, or even worse, going to jail.  Filing a contempt if the other person is refusing to comply with a court order can be very helpful in making the other side fulfill his or her responsibilities to you and/or your children.

If your ex-spouse is neglecting their court ordered responsibilities or if you are unfairly accused of being in contempt, you deserve the best representation.
