Once a case has come to its end and a Final Judgment has been entered, there are certain Orders put in place by the Court. Many times, one or both parties will not fully comply with the Order(s). Some of these Orders may direct a party to pay a certain amount of child support or alimony, set a certain child timesharing schedule, or put someone in control of a home mortgage. If one of the parties is not complying with the Court’s Order(s), that party can be found in contempt of court.
When one party suspects the other of contempt, they will have to file a motion with the Court asking for it to be reinforced. Generally a hearing on the Motion for Contempt must be held in order for the Judge to hear both sides of the story and come to a decision.
