Contempt

Atlanta Family Law Attorney Handling Contempt Actions

At the time of divorce, the court will outline terms governing the ongoing relationship between former spouses – addressing issues such as child custody, child support and spousal support. Unfortunately, parents don’t always follow the court orders.

When this happens, contempt proceedings allow either party to ensure that the original terms of the order are appropriately enforced. At the family law firm of Deborah M. Lubin, P.C., we provide skilled legal representation for people in contempt proceedings. We understand that there are two sides to any issue, and we represent both people seeking to enforce divorce orders and those defending against contempt actions.

Contempt proceedings may arise in a range of different circumstances. A custodial parent may prevent scheduled visitation with the noncustodial parent. A parent ordered to pay child support or alimony may simply stop making payments. In some cases, there may not be a good reason for failing to adhere to the orders; in other cases, there may be very good reasons for failing to follow the orders.

Regardless of the particular nature of your circumstances, we will work diligently to protect your rights and interests, and to resolve disputes in a timely manner.
