Contempt

Contempt of court must be pursued when a party fails to abide by the terms of a court Order.  The most common contempt issues 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.  We 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.

At Marple Rubin Family Law, we help our clients obtain favorable results in order to begin the next chapter of their lives. We provide sound legal advice and counsel, based on years of experience and training. We are dedicated to our clients and to securing them the best possible outcomes.
