Mississippi Family Law Attorney and Lawyer for Contempt or Contempt of Court
Contempt or Contempt of Court is a remedy available in Mississippi against a person who fails to follow a Court Order or Judgment. If someone is held in Contempt of court, the court has the power to punish the violator with a fine, jail time, other actions, or all of these. In Divorce issues, examples of Contempt or Contempt of Court include failure to pay Child Support, denying a party his or her right to Visitation, failure to turn over property to the other spouse, failure to follow through on court ordered drug or alcohol treatment, among others.
Fines and jail time are special remedies reserved for flagrant violators. Failure to pay child support, for example, unto itself, does not necessarily land the violator in jail. There must be other proof, such as ability to pay. Since the accused party could go to jail, the proof must be in order and a Mississippi Family Law Attorney must be prepared.
