What Is Contempt?

The most common contempt situation involves a parent failing to pay child support, often due to their belief that they have been paying too much or the loss of their job. It is not a parent's place to take the law into their own hands, and doing so places them in contempt. Anytime the agreement of the parties is not being followed, a contempt motion is the primary enforcement mechanism.

Providing Remedies to the Underlying Issues

While it is important to pursue or defend against the finding of contempt, it is just as important to correct the underlying issues that caused or contributed to the contempt motion. For instance, if child support payment amounts need to be adjusted, we can help you press for modifications that will help avoid child support enforcement issues in the future.
