Enforcement and Contempt

title
title

When one party decides to disobey the Court or violate the Court’s orders, it becomes necessary to bring the case back in front of the Judge and request specific instructions and punishments. This process is called enforcement. If the Judge finds that a violation has occurred and holds a party in contempt of court, there can be serious repercussions. The good news is that a contempt finding means the court will also award attorney fees to the individual who had to bring the request forward. The bad news? The one who’s been hurt by the violation is in charge of spending the time and money to get the situation fixed. The law is simply not designed to “catch” the problem before it happens, in the hopes that the threat of enforcement and contempt will be sufficient. Lloyd Law Firm enables clients in this process to have Court orders followed and defends those actions of clients who have been wrongfully accused. Let us know how we can help you.
