We are filing Contempt Petitions in Custody for our custody clients who consistently face the other side not following the Court’s Order. We have had success in our Contempt petitions and have recently been awarded our clients’ attorneys fees for having to file against the non-compliant parent. Some parties think that they can simply ignore the Court’s Order. Our new custody laws have made it our responsibility to carefully check into criminal backgrounds of the parents and others involved in the care of the child. This has also been a huge area of our custody law practice. It is also possible contempt when parties allow their significant others or new spouses as well as household members to be with the child when they have certain criminal convictions. We can research these issues for you and give you the advice you need to make decicions whether to file actions in court or not.
