Violation and Contempt of Support

Violation and Contempt of Support

Contempt is a power of the court that it uses to enforce its own orders. When you are hurt by your spouse’s disregard of a court order, one solution is to prove your spouse in contempt. A court ruling that your spouse is in contempt has considerably more impact than an award of attorney’s fees and costs for being unreasonable. Contempt can result in jail time, not just fines.
