Contempt of court is a situation in which a person may have been disrespectful or disobeyed a court order or the court’s authority.
A judge can impose sanctions on an individual found in contempt.
If the other party fails to follow a court order, he or she may be in contempt of court and may face monetary loss or jail time. When the other party is unwilling to follow orders of the court, you need an attorney to help you enforce the court’s order. If you are the party who is unable to follow orders of the court, you may be eligible for a modification of the underlying court orders so that your obligations are modified and you do not face monetary sanctions or jail time.
