A Motion for Contempt/Enforcement requests that the court force a party to comply with the terms of a previous order. If a party has failed to comply with a court order, the case may be reopened, and a Motion for Contempt/Enforcement may be filed. For example if you are being denied access to timesharing or a party is failing to pay child support. Whether you are the party who has been wronged and are not receiving your court ordered support, or you are the party who has fallen on hard times and cannot comply, contact Jennifer Dane Family Law to discuss options for your next steps.

Typically, a Motion for Contempt is appropriate when a party has failed to pay either court ordered child support or alimony. In a contempt proceeding, if the court finds a party to be in contempt, the court may for example suspend their driverís license, revoke their passport, or even put them in jail with a purge amount, or an amount they must pay to be released from jail.
Typically, a Motion for Enforcement is appropriate when a party has failed to comply with Equitable Distribution. Equitable Distribution is the distribution of property and debt between parties. If the court finds that the party has the present ability to comply, the court will enforce its order against the party and order them to comply.
