Court Orders in York Divorce Cases

How do I get a contempt of court order in Lancaster?

When a couple divorces, the court issues various orders regarding the payment of alimony, child custody and child support. When any of these orders are disregarded, such as failing to pay spousal support, a petition can be submitted to the court requesting a hearing on the matter. If the court determines that the order has been violated, the person responsible for the violation is found in contempt of court. The penalties for contempt of court can include:

  • Fines
  • Payment of attorney fees
  • Transfer or change of custody and custody rights

If your ex-spouse is ignoring a court order, contact a York divorce attorney from Ilkhanoff & Silverstein for immediate assistance. A qualified lawyer from our firm can help prepare your petition and represent you at your hearing.
