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
- How do I prove the other parent has not paid their court ordered child support?
