Proven Spring Family Law Attorney

Assisting With Contempt of Court Cases

When an individual goes against an order filed from the court, that person can be found in contempt of court. The court has a right and duty to enforce family law orders and there are a series of penalties for those who go against those orders.

The Law Office of Bryan Fagan offers aggressive and compassionate counsel for clients who are facing a serious family law matter. Our firm can successfully handle cases in which parents must file for a contempt motion and parents who have been filed against with an understanding approach towards finding a legal solution that meets your specific needs.

Call The Law Office of Bryan Fagan today at (281) 810-9760 to learn how we can help.

How does a court enforce an order using contempt?

If a court ordered custody or visitation agreement is violated, the court will typically enforce the order by way of a contempt hearing. To enforce the order, the court must use “command language,” which is specific, unambiguous, and outlines every detail of the order. Filing a contempt motion cannot change a custody, visitation, or alimony agreement, but an individual can order changes to the agreement during a contempt hearing.

A contempt motion can be filed for any of the following violations:

  • Denying child custody
  • Blocking child visitation
  • Failing to adhere to property division agreements
  • Refusing to provide spousal maintenance
