Family Law Contempt & Enforcement Proceedings for $200 per hour

Nonpayment of child support, alimony and uncovered healthcare expense contribution, denial of timesharing, failure to maintain health, dental or life insurance and failure to receive assets awarded to you in equitable distribution can be enforced by filing a motion for contempt or enforcement.

A Judge can order a party to pay a fine or to be incarcerated until the party pays a purge amount or executes a document or performs as provided in the divorce decree or other Court order. Failure of a former spouse to refinance the former marital home or disburse 401K funds are common issues.

A Judge has authority to enter an income deduction order to secure the payment of unpaid alimony, child support and health care expense contribution.

A judge can order a party to invade their 401K or sell an asset to pay their “ex” unpaid alimony, child support, 401K and equitable distribution monies.

Quick Law Review

The Florida Supreme Court defined contempt as “Any act which is calculated to embarrass, hinder, or obstruct the court in the administration of justice, or which is calculated to lessen its authority or its dignity.”

More About Contempt & Enforcement

A Judge has authority to order the other party to pay my attorney fees and costs associated with filing a motion for contempt or enforcement on your behalf.

Often one party is afraid to bring their ex-spouse, etc. to court for fear of retribution. Procrastinating is never good.

A Judge is less likely to be sympathetic if a party waits a year to file a motion for contempt for denied timesharing, etc.

I provide candid advice. My expertise allows me to predict all possible scenario outcomes. Sometimes it makes financial or litigation sense to file a motion for contempt or enforcement in a certain timeline.
