Hailey can help by filing a contempt action.
What is a Contempt Action?
A contempt action is used to enforce clear, unequivocal court orders which are being willfully disregarded. A contempt action is the means by which we help you enforce the other party's compliance with the court order.
If the court's orders are not being followed, the court has all the tools available to it to enforce compliance.
- The court can change custody or visitation arrangements, or
- It could order counseling for one or both of the parties.
- It might also involve jail time.
- If the other party is found guilty of contempt, the law presumes that you are entitled to attorney fees
