Contempt of court must be pursued when a party fails to abide by the terms of a Court Order. The most common contempt issues in Atlanta include failure to pay child support; failure to pay alimony; and failure to divide assets as ordered to do so by the court. A court has wide discretion and can be very creative when determining the punishment to obtain compliance of its orders.
Alternatively, there are often defenses to allegations of contempt, but not all attorneys are familiar with these defenses. Our Atlanta contempt lawyers represent clients on both side of the aisle – those pursuing contempt actions and those defending against them – which allows us to better serve each of our clients by knowing how to look at the claims from all points of view.
