A Contempt and/or Enforcement action is appropriate when one of the parties is not complying with the current Court’s order or instruction. An enforcement action is when one of the parties asks the Court to instruct the non-compliant person to comply within a time frame or sanctions may be imposed. A contempt action is appropriate when the non-compliant person has the capacity or ability to comply with the Court’s Orders, but willfully refuses to do so. The sanctions for a non-compliant person held in contempt can be significant and can include incarceration.
