Post-judgment contempt and/or enforcement issues involve issues where an individual has been issued a court order and he or she is not following it.
In the case of family law, the typical issues involve:
- Child support
- Time sharing
When someone is not complying with a court order, it is possible to file an order of contempt. Legally speaking, if someone is in contempt of court, there is a threat/penalty of jail time. Contempt is usually related to support, alimony and in rare cases, attorney’s fees.
Enforcement is typically reserved for property division and/or equitable distribution issues, and there is no threat of jail.
