Enforcement Measures Taken by the Court

Simply put, contempt occurs when an individual refuses to obey an order, mandate, or decree that is entered in by a judge. Often in family law cases, contentious issues are decided upon, and one party may have no desire to comply with the court's final decision. When this occurs, a variety of civil and criminal actions can be take against the individual to enforce compliance.
