What is Contempt of Court?

A Court Order MUST be followed.  Failure to follow the orders of a court is Contempt of Court.  There are two (2) basic types of contempt:  1) civil contempt and 2) criminal contempt.  Failure to follow a court order can result in a person going to jail or paying fines, court costs, and attorneys fees.  To enforce a court order, a Petition for Contempt must be filed in the Court which entered the Order being violated.  Contrary to public opinion, courts do not automatically enforce its own Orders; parties must hire an attorney to file a Petition for Contempt.

Typical Contempt of Court Charges:

  • Failure to pay child support
  • Failure to pay alimony
