Once a divorce is read into record, both parties are obligated to uphold the judgments governing support and custody. If the parties violate these judgments, they not only cause emotional and financial difficulties for a family — they are also in contempt of court.
Fortunately, the courts allow for enforcement mechanisms so that people can obtain accountability and force the violating party to uphold the judgment, face fines or even go to jail. If you are working through a family law issue where someone is in contempt of court, we are prepared to work to obtain the accountability and justice you deserve.
