Enforcement & Contempt

Contempt of Court Lawyer Tampa

When a couple goes through a divorce some of the common items that need to be decided by the court or agreed upon by the parties include child timesharing, child support, and alimony. Once approved and incorporated into an order signed by the presiding judge, these decisions and agreements are considered court orders by the Florida court system. Once all items have been ordered, the parties involved need to comply with these orders.

When one of the parties does not comply with a child parenting time, child support, alimony order, the Florida legal system considers that party to be in contempt of court. Contempt of court is legally defined as behavior in or out of court that is in violation of a court order. If you are found in contempt of court, depending on the situation, this could result in jail time or a hefty fine. Sometimes it is clear when an order is not followed, sometimes it is murky.
