Attorney at Law
Anderson, Fields, Dermody & McIlwain
If a party fails to comply with a court order, several remedies can be invoked to terminate such breaches. Contempt of court is one. The consequences can be dire, like a fine or jail time.
Should a party fail to comply with the court’s order to pay support, he/she may have their wages garnished or be required to give a wage assignment.
A party may be sentenced to jail for failing to obey a court’s mandate until compliance. This is discussed later in the child support section of this book.
