Enforcement & Contempt

Divorce and paternity actions include the imposition of court orders. Such orders require one party to pay child support or alimony to the other and outline time-sharing commitments  and parental responsibilities. When one party fails to obey these court orders, it falls upon the other party to try and enforce them through motions for enforcement or contempt. Contempt is a serious action with potentially serious repercussions. Penalties can include fines, liens and even incarceration. Let us at Benjamin & Melmer, LLC work on your behalf to resolve these serious and often complex actions in a judicious and effective manner..
