What does it mean to be in contempt of court in a family law proceeding?

Return to FAQ Videos


Contempt of court is one way for the judge to enforce certain orders, whether that’s alimony or child support. If one person is in contempt of court, then the judge can rule certain sanctions, whether that’s monetarily or jail time, and typically that would end up in hopefully the person abiding by the court order.
